Business Crisis Control and Workout

In  

many cases, the attorneys at Ziulkowski & Associates can quickly identify areas of crisis for our clients and establish a voluntary crisis control and workout program with your creditors to avoid Bankruptcy and keep your business operational. In the process, we will completely restructure your corporate debt and position your company for a rapid return to profitability. This will enable your business to reap most of the benefits of a bankruptcy filing without suffering the drawbacks and expense of this protracted process. However, in some instances debt workout and restructuring are simply not possible. In those cases, our attorneys can help you with winding down the corporation and if necessary, represent the business in bankruptcy proceedings.

At Ziulkowski & Associates, PLC, our objective will be to restore both your ”bankability” and profitability by reshaping your Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss. We achieve this through the settlement, reduction and liquidation of excessive debt, including disputed claims.

Some of the areas we address in our process include:

  • Debt Management and Reduction
  • Financial Workouts and Turnarounds
  • Voluntary Liquidation as an Alternative to Bankruptcy
  • Restructuring of Real Estate Assets
  • Receivable Financing and Collection
  • Contract Negotiation & Resolution
  • Loan Qualification
  • Sale/Merger of Business
  • Current & Long Term Debt
  • Funding Services
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Discontinued Operations [Ensuring a profitable disposal of loss making operations]

Business Debt Workout

Our priority is to negotiate for an immediate and rapid settlement of all troublesome debt and relieve our clients of the burdens associated with creditor and debtor processes. A swift response is essential to ensure any overdue or delinquent debt does not deteriorate into legal proceedings and involve the additional costs of legal fees, court costs and compounding interest. Our system has an assignment success rate of more than 90 percent.

Our initial engagement period is 90 days and during this time we would expect to resolve most of our client’s pressing debt issues. Our continued success in this traditionally challenging area has been attributed to:

  • An open non-adversarial approach to creditors, which enables our clients to maintain continuity with their lenders, investors, bond/note holders, vendors, and customers
  • Defining and setting strict deadlines for settlement agreements
  • Encouraging the free flow of information between all interested parties

Many businesses that are having financial difficulties have issues with their accounts receivables. In the workout process, immediate action is also essential for success with recovering money that is owed to our clients. Our objective is to recover all possible outstanding accounts as quickly as possible and many of our clients will start receiving the first payments within 30 days of our commencing operations.

Business Debt Recovery

Once we have completed our workout process, we can negotiate for a restructuring of the remaining debt. This combination of debt reduction and restructuring is the key to radically reshaping the company’s balance sheet, profit and loss, and opening the door for a swift return to profitability.

All successfully retired delinquent debt may be deleted from the company’s credit record as a condition of settlement. The company’s new credit standing/rating can invariably open up new sources of debt/equity funding which would otherwise be unavailable. 

Our service has generated substantial increases in shareholder value for corporate clients and has done much to increase the sale/merger value.
