In bankruptcy and creditors’ rights matters, clients are looking for a resolution that meets their business and financial objectives. In most cases, the more efficiently you can deliver the desired outcome, the better off your clients will be. This means giving candid advice concerning the strengths and weaknesses of the client’s position, and assessing realistic outcomes. Clients look to me to assess the lay of the land, analyze the legal and business issues and get them to the finish line as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
