Gesmer Updegrove represents creditors, corporations and committees of credit, debt or equity holders in many facets of financial and corporate restructurings. Financial restructurings, workouts and commercial bankruptcies have lost their historic stigma, and now play a larger role in broader corporate strategies.
Our work includes assisting secured and mezzanine lenders draft and negotiate forbearance agreements, refinance or restructure existing loan facilities, and foreclose liens on all tangible and intangible assets. We also help emerging or troubled companies recapitalize debt obligations and equity interests.
We advise companies in all aspects of Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases, commercial foreclosures and assignments for the benefit of creditors.
We also assist investors and lenders interested in purchasing or selling operating companies, business lines and assets in both consensual and non-consensual transactions.
