When a company faces a financial crisis, everyday-operating procedures can become a struggle. Credit is increasingly restricted, the ability to make payroll is in doubt, paying vendors on time is nearly impossible and overall morale suffers as a result of these financial difficulties.
At Keevican Weiss Bauerle & Hirsch LLC, we have a unique approach to break the snowball effect of a financial crisis. Through the experience of our lawyers and the use of our ancillary business, Renaissance Partners, our capabilities reach beyond the scope of traditional legal services. Renaissance Partners focuses on identifying problem areas in businesses and, through the use of financial and operations experts, suggests changes that have an immediate impact on the bottom line. Renaissance Partners also has the ability to find new financing or new equity that can alleviate the financial pressures which are strangling the business and, in the event refinancing cannot be found, it has the investment banking experience to find a buyer for the business as a going concern.
