Debtors in Bankruptcy Proceedings & Workouts

For most financially distressed companies, the prospect of bankruptcy can be quite daunting. In addition to the effects on shareholders, owners, lenders and investors, bankruptcies and reorganizations can carry significant consequences for executives, employees, families—even entire communities.

At Much Shelist, we take great satisfaction in helping troubled companies negotiate the complex path that can lead to long-term business success. While changes may be difficult and choices may be painful, our experienced, steady guidance is available to clients at every step along the way.

Our lawyers have broad experience representing debtors in Chapter 11 reorganization cases, as well as in out-of-court recapitalizations, workouts, turnarounds and restructurings. We have counseled clients in a range of industries that reflect the economy of the Midwest. In serving our debtor clients, we often call upon attorneys from the firm's other practice areas to address the challenges and opportunities that frequently arise in these matters.
