Our experience in restructuring is exceptional.
Sometimes the process can be as basic as asking “why.”
Archer offers operational analysis and adjustment, if, where, and as needed. Sometimes the process can be as basic as asking “why.” We bring our unique perspective to openly and honestly review our clients’ creation and enactment methods and suggest alternative processes that can make all the difference. By working with our clients, gaining an understanding of the industry, we have together created efficiencies that have allowed them to return to profitability, extinguish debt, and solidly move forward to growth. Where necessary, Archer can use the Chapter 11 process to give a client time to reinvent its process, thereby restoring the client’s operation while maximizing the creditors’ returns.
Archer’s team has an extensive track record of advising debtors and creditors in all facets of the reorganization (and even coordinated liquidation) process. Through those efforts over thirty-plus years across varied situations from logging in the Redwoods of California’s Lost Coast to gilt jewelers in Boston’s Back Bay and San Francisco’s Union Square to the New York City’s retail corridors to the movie studios of Los Angeles, we have developed a deep understanding of the operational aspects of each stage on the distress continuum.
Our lawyers represents clients through all aspects of restructuring and insolvency matters through to and including Chapter 11. We strive for bankruptcy or litigation avoidance, focusing on workouts and transactional resolutions. Through deep relationships developed over our years of practice, when working on clients’ complex restructuring and bankruptcy deals, we are able to draw on our expertise, and bring in the best lawyers from other global practices as needed to handle M&A, financing, tax and regulatory practices.
If the restructuring process becomes intransigent or the adversary implacable, we have extensive experience and great success in all facets of arbitration, motion, trial, and appellate practice.
