Business Restructuring & Reorganization Practice Overview

Edwards Maxson Mago & Macaulay, LLP represents debtors, secured and unsecured creditors and other parties in interest in bankruptcy cases and related litigation. We represent lenders providing debtor-in-possession financing, cash collateral and escrow services. We also represent clients engaged in pre-bankruptcy planning, and out-of-court workouts and restructurings. Our focus is to enable our clients to navigate the bankruptcy process efficiently, and to be effective at resolving complex issues arising in distressed situations.

EM³’s attorneys are adept at handling complex business restructurings, in addition to bankruptcy and creditors’ rights litigation, arbitrations and mediation. Our experience ranges from cross-border insolvency matters to pre-arranged or pre-packaged cases involving middle market and smaller enterprises. EM³ manages clients’ business reorganization matters in a timely and cost effective manner, regardless of their size or complexity.

Our attorneys have worked on prominent chapter 11 cases such as Lehman Brothers, Chrysler and General Motors, in addition to various real estate, retail, hospitality and healthcare bankruptcies. In addition to engagement in significant debtor cases, EM³’s experience includes handling various DIP financings, cash collateral and other representations for lenders, creditors’ committees and other parties in interest.  EM³ lawyers also have represented significant (top 25) creditors in cases such as Westinghouse Electric, PG&E Corporation, Gander Mountain, Payless Shoes, Forever 21 Toys "R" Us and Rhodes Pharma.

Our industry experience includes automotive, cable, commercial real estate, equipment leasing, financial services, gaming, healthcare, hospitality, investment banking, IT, logistics, manufacturing, media/entertainment, pharmaceutical, publishing, retail and telecom.
