We are experienced in business and bankruptcy issues … since the two are inseparable. An understanding and appreciation of all aspects of business and business law are fundamental to understanding the legal process of financial restructuring. This business perspective is the foundation of CGA Law Firm’s unique culture. Our bankruptcy lawyers work regularly with our corporate and real estate attorneys in analyzing and drafting documents and structuring transactions in a work-out, as well as in a bankruptcy context.

You cannot make the best decisions without a complete understanding of the process, the options, and the ramifications. Proper planning can help to prevent or minimize the massive disruption and investment of time, energy, and money involved in any financial restructuring. The time to address bankruptcy issues is before the start of the insolvency proceeding. The best way to prevent financial and legal problems is to prepare for them.
