Debt Advisory & Restructuring
HELPING COMPANIES MANAGE THEIR DEBT
Specialists in “Out-of-the-Ordinary”. PJ SOLOMON was the among the early boutique investment banking firms that pioneered the debt advisory & restructuring business in the 1990s. Our debt advisory practice today remains a leader in the business, providing independent strategic and financial advice to corporate management teams, boards of directors, private equity and strategic investors, creditor groups, and other key stakeholders involved in troubled company situations.
OUR BANKERS ARE TRUSTED ADVISORS
Our team brings our clients a wealth of diverse transaction experience, unmatched technical expertise and instant market credibility. Having led some of the largest and most complex restructuring transactions over the past 20 years, our senior bankers are widely regarded as trusted advisors, highly skilled in transaction structuring, deal strategy development and execution, business and security valuation analysis, expert testimony, and multi-party negotiations.
We work closely with our clients to understand their problems and objectives and provide them with a comprehensive assessment of the range of available alternatives. We employ an integrated advisory approach which draws on the deep industry knowledge of our sector coverage bankers and the capital markets expertise of our Financing Advisory practice. This permits us a broader perspective on our clients’ challenges, allowing us to develop custom-tailored solutions that address not only their immediate financial difficulties, but also their longer-term operating, financial and strategic objectives. This interdisciplinary approach, together with our dedication to hands-on, senior banker leadership throughout the duration of the engagement, distinguishes us from other advisors in our business.
Importantly, as an independent firm focused solely on offering our clients advice on significant strategic and financial matters, our approach and recommendations are neither influenced by product or market biases, nor burdened by buy-side relationship conflicts. We prize and zealously protect our integrity, understanding that in the advisory business, there is nothing more important than our reputation and our clients’ trust.
