Restructuring and Bankruptcy

Abernathy MacGregor’s financial restructuring and bankruptcy practice has helped hundreds of organizations weather financial storms, leading up to and through court-supervised processes and in out-of-court initiatives. Among our recent engagements was the Chapter 9 filing of one of America’s largest municipalities. Our goal for every client is to use clear, consistent and compelling communications to minimize disruption and preserve business value.

We help clients seek ways to ensure that customers have the confidence to order, suppliers have the confidence to ship and employees have the motivation to continue working productively. We also help clients garner the support of debtholders/bondholders and ensure that their plans are reported accurately and positively. Our work includes developing flexible strategies for contingencies, delivering sophisticated media relations to manage rumors and distracting speculation, and engaging and educating key stakeholders and third-parties to build their understanding and support.

Our relationships with financial media and our work with asset managers give us particular insight into the complicated, often contentious aspects of any restructuring work. We know how to minimize these issues and help an organization reach its ultimate objectives.
