Trusted counsel in times of corporate turbulence, transition and challenge


Senior Officer General Counsel

Distressed companies often lack a general counsel, or have a corporate counsel office working at capacity to meet the company’s commercial and regulatory demands. We serve as interim general counsel, or in other senior officer roles, to augment the C-suite through a restructuring, focusing on the diverse needs of management, boards of directors and special committees.
