Business Restructuring Services Department
David Agay, Co-Chair and Chicago office contact

Business restructuring is just that: a business restructuring, not simply a legal issue. When you are restructuring your business, you need business-based solutions. And, if you are a lender, creditor, or potential buyer, you want someone with experience on both ends of the table who can guide you through the process. Our focus is on efficiently providing advice on your situation and assisting you in achieving the optimal result – even in a difficult environment. We have one of the largest and most sophisticated bankruptcy and restructuring practices focused on the middle market. Because restructuring often requires other expertise, we work as a team with you, your other advisors, and the other experienced professionals at our firm to provide the most complete business and legal advice.
