Bankruptcy Advisory

At CR3, our bankruptcy consulting professionals provide management teams a third-party, objective point of view supported by our decades of experience with insolvency. Knowing when a restructuring or turnaround is best accomplished by filing for bankruptcy protection or other court-supervised process is critical to our clients’ decision-making process.

We guide and support bankruptcy consulting clients through every stage of the bankruptcy process.

While bankruptcy protection and similar legal avenues are generally perceived as a last resort, there is sometimes no other way to combat cash seizures by the bank, forestall default action by a lender or landlord, stay a significant creditor judgment, or get ahead of a supplier interruption. Often the complex restructuring of a business, its capital structure, or its contracts cannot be negotiated out of court.

We provide guidance throughout the insolvency process as CRO or Financial Advisor, including:

  • Communication plans for internal and external stakeholders
  • Development of bankruptcy reporting, including schedules, statements of financial affairs, and monthly operating reports
  • Assembly of data and exhibits for first-day motions
  • Sizing, sourcing, and negotiation of debtor-in-possession financing
  • Assistance and participation in hearings and testimony
  • Preparation assistance for disclosure statement and the Plan of Reorganization (POR)
  • Managing the bankruptcy or restructuring process so organizations can get back to business
