When restructuring, insolvency or bankruptcy appears and financial distress threatens a business, rapidly maximizing values is key. Whether the challenge appears at headquarters or in a foreign jurisdiction, today’s global marketplace presents the decision-maker with a complex web of possible outcomes and legal strategies. Protecting your interests can be a daunting task when faced with conflicting economic interests, emotions and sometimes multiple legal systems and cultural norms.
