Restructuring and Workout

Sudden or dramatic business reversals can paralyze decision makers making it difficult to move forward toward a profitable turnaround. At Robins Kaplan LLP, we help guide our clients through the restructuring process and build the consensus needed to bring the parties together or outmaneuver our adversaries in court. Our restructuring attorneys have experience in creatively representing every possible constituency in the restructuring and workout area, including: the company, its owners, guarantors and affiliates, its senior and junior secured and unsecured banks and other creditors, its creditor committees, acquiring companies, and investors. This gives us a deep understanding of the various positions different constituent creditors--secured and unsecured--may take. To create value for clients, our restructuring lawyers leverage their understanding of sophisticated bankruptcy and litigation strategies and tactics. We employ effective techniques such as:

  • Auctions
  • First and Second Position Lien Agreements and Modifications
  • Forbearance Arrangements
  • Inter-creditor Agreements
  • Issuances of Preferred and Common Stock
  • Modifications to Existing Credit Agreements
  • Refinancing and Issuances of New Debt or Equity Obligations
  • Sale of Assets
