In any bankruptcy, restructuring, or liquidation proceeding, your valuation and advisory team’s expertise is critical in maintaining the confidence of all parties involved. Whether you are filing under Chapter 7 to liquidate your assets or reorganizing under Chapter 11, Rivero, Gordimer & Company (RGCO) can provide the appraisals and valuations that will hold up to the highest levels of scrutiny.
Filing for bankruptcy is a multi-layered process with many legal and tax implications. Given the growing complexity of today’s businesses and the increasing sophistication of bankruptcy proceedings, you need someone on your team to navigate your path toward a successful outcome.
Our shareholders and professionals have served as partners and associates with some of the largest international accounting firms in the U.S. We have decades of experience successfully working with public and private businesses of all sizes. We understand that bankruptcy filings can blend the full-range of forensic, transactional, and valuation services into one setting due to the nature of complex, distressed entities.
Starting with a reliable valuation, we will ensure you and your management team will have the tools and strategies in place to make smart decisions. A well-written valuation can assist you with creditor negotiations and provide the framework you need for your reorganization or liquidation plan.
When in bankruptcy, it is important to assess how much is available to your business’s secured and unsecured creditors and determine the value left for equity holders. If the plan is to continue operating, it is essential to know what can be leveraged to secure the business’s future after bankruptcy.
Bankruptcy court is a court of equity and, many times, we are called upon to testify and resolve disputes fairly and justly. In some cases, state court is involved. RGCO has assisted both debtors and creditors with various issues arising from bankruptcy filings. We will work with your attorney toward an equitable outcome.
We’ve also assisted courts, trustees, and attorneys with matters involving avoidable liability and transactions, involuntary petitions, reclamation, disputed claims, lender liability, protection and relief from stay issues, and preparation of prepackaged plans of reorganization. We have also acted as court-appointed receiver of the business and have assisted with the preparation of monthly operating reports.
