My business is in distress. What’s my next move?
You’ve come to a point where ‘business as usual’ is no longer an option. It is unclear what your next move should be or just how you’re going to make it through the next payment cycle, let alone see the next quarter. What’s your next step? How will you manage this crisis?
When it comes to a business in distress, as tempting as it may be to ignore, the problem won’t fix itself.
Whether the solution calls for an informal restructuring or an assignment in bankruptcy, a formal restructuring under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act, or a proposal under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, we get to know the business and its challenges, and help put things into perspective. We assess and identify the options and guide you to the optimal solution in an objective and professional manner.
