The lawyers and staff of Sweet DeMarb LLC have decades of experience advising and representing businesses in financial distress. Yes, we file bankruptcy cases. However, we consider ourselves first and foremost to be problem solvers and advisors to our clients. We spend far more time investigating and solving our clients’ problems outside of court than inside of court.
To reorganize a business, we negotiate on behalf of clients with banks and other lenders, trade creditors, and governmental agencies to solve the clients’ entire financial problem, not just the one that may be hot that day or that week. This holistic approach means that when our retention has completed there should be no need to consult with us again anytime soon.
As part of the reorganization process, we negotiate and draft forbearance agreements, loan restructuring documents and other agreements that allow businesses the best opportunity to work through their financial distress. Problem solving, though, is more than just investigation, negotiation and drafting. It is follow-through and implementation.
We advise our clients and help them solve their problems. To be sure, we are lawyers and we bring a lawyer’s talents to any problem, but we also understand that legal solutions are not always the best or most effective initial ways to address business and financial problems. We will not hesitate to tell you if we think a non-legal approach to a problem might be the best course to take, and we will recommend bankruptcy only where appropriate.
Through our professional team and a host of strategic alliances with other legal, accounting and business professionals, there is virtually no challenge facing a small or middle-market company that we cannot tackle. Please peruse our practice area and industry specific pages to see more specific information on the types of services we provide.
We would love to give you a list of the companies we have worked to reorganize, but those companies want to keep their financial past private. When it makes the most sense, we represent the company through the sale of its assets. When we have no other choice, we file and run a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case with skill. Thankfully, we spend most of our time working with businesses to privately and effectively reorganize them so that they are well positioned for the future. We find business solutions within the framework of the legal environment, not the other way around.
