Risk is a business opportunity.
Changing preferences, regulatory developments, economic volatility, and shifting political winds can impact the fortunes of an enterprise, an investment or an asset at any time. Goodwin’s global Financial Restructuring team works with clients to identify in advance and take advantage of the opportunities created by uncertainty. We develop commercial solutions that create and preserve value.
From distressed enterprises, loan portfolios, real estate assets, joint ventures, and intellectual property licenses, across business sectors, our team advises debtors, directors, management, creditors, investors, lenders, debt holders, distressed asset acquirers and special board, creditor and equity committees in complex restructuring matters worldwide. Our team is known for its ability to anticipate financial issues and devise strategies with ingenuity to identify and address financial opportunities before they become crises.
We represent every type of major stakeholder invested in, or interested in acquiring, a stressed enterprise or asset. We work with colleagues across practices to implement transactional solutions and innovative strategies that produce creative, successful transaction structures, asset acquisitions, refinancings, recapitalizations, reorganizations and liability management — both within and outside of formal bankruptcy or insolvency cases.
We represent clients in negotiations and litigation with other stakeholders — from negotiating the enforcement of creditor rights and claims, debtor protections against creditors and the express terms of financial restructurings, to litigating confirmation of contested plans, and representing debtors and creditors in valuation and claw-back disputes.
