Fiduciary and Forensic Support

Legal proceedings tend to be expensive for the small and middle market companies we serve. But sometimes a lawsuit, bankruptcy filing, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors is the only way to accomplish your goal. Whether hired by a company directly or hired by a fiduciary already in place (trustee, receiver), our goal is the same. Use the legal process to achieve a business result or get to a needed answer through tried and true processes and outstanding and proven analytical techniques.

Case Study: Bankruptcy Advisory (Advisor to Trustee)

Situation and Assessment Findings:

  • Trustee appointed after repeated entries and withdrawals from Chapter 11 due to shareholder dispute.
  • Significant fraud discovered. Key managers resigned or were terminated as a result.
  • Only viable exit was a sale but, given that assets were people, significant operational, legal and analytical support was required to ensure ongoing operational viability and preservation of asset values.

Type of Assistance:

  • Assumed responsibility for operation of business for the Trustee.
  • Conducted analysis and supported counsel in bringing litigation against prior CEO for siphoning assets from the Debtor’s estate.
  • Worked with counsel to address the many fraudulent business and labor practices and resulting liabilities discovered and quantified during our assessment.
  • Managed the sale process for the Trustee.

Results:

  • Maintained staff (revenue and profit) at comparable levels to when assumed responsibility for operations.
  • Restructured staff to create new management team.
  • Identified, supported return of, and managed re-integration of approximately $500k in siphoned assets (contracts and staff).
  • Sold business for $7.55M after initial bids indicated highest value of $5M.
