Bankruptcy & Restructuring

Whitley Penn understands that financial difficulties can arise for businesses of all sizes and industries. Our dedicated Bankruptcy and Restructuring team assists companies facing financial distress or insolvency by providing specific and professional guidance. Whether your organization needs assistance with operational turnaround/restructuring assessments, planning, and/or implementation, requires strategic advice on and/or execution of a financial restructuring, or is contemplating bankruptcy or have filed an in-court proceeding, our team of experienced professionals is committed to helping you navigate and/or manage these complex situations. Our expertise and experience also extend beyond the confirmation or termination of bankruptcy proceedings through expert testimony in post-confirmation litigation or by many other avenues, such as management of a lender’s collateral pending foreclosure.

With a deep understanding of the reorganization, operational, and financial landscape, our professionals will work closely and collaboratively with you, and your attorneys, to develop a customized plan tailored to your specific needs and objectives.   Moreover, we have been and can be very “hands-on” as required to meet your goals and objectives. We have significant experience in both out-of-court restructurings and bankruptcy proceedings to maximize the recovery to and preserve value for all stakeholders.  Whitley Penn professionals have performed these services for a broad range of companies – from lower middle-market concerns to Fortune 100 multi-national corporations.
