Berlin Patten Ebling offers creditor clients representation in Out-of-Court Workouts. An Out-of-Court Workout can be a preferable alternative to litigation or bankruptcy when there is a contractual default.

Consensual agreements negotiated outside of court can be very beneficial for all parties involved. Below are some of the benefits of an Out-of-Court Workout for lenders and creditors:

  • Can be a less expensive alternative to litigation;
  • Negotiations and implementation of the agreement of an Out-of-Court Workout may take less time than an agreement achieved after litigation has commenced;
  • Less court supervision and interference;
  • Allows creditor more recovery than it would be entitled to in a bankruptcy filing;
  • Allows for creativity in forming an agreement that is satisfactory and conforms to the creditor’s needs, such as special provisions needed for accounting, compliance, or internal policies;
  • Enables the default to be cured using beneficial terms to the creditor rather than only receiving value from the creditor’s collateral; and
  • Creditor must consent for the workout to be successful!
