EXPERTISE CHAPTER 11 GCG is the market leader for administering chapter 11 cases of all sizes and across all industries. We offer comprehensive services for all aspects of a bankruptcy reorganization and will work with you to build a customized approach. We have handled many notable engagements including, General Motors, American Airlines, Edison Mission Energy, MF Global, General Maritime Corporation, and Patriot Coal Corporation.
CHAPTER 7 GCG provides expert service to help chapter 7 trustees fulfill their responsibility liquidating a company. Many of the same innovative tools that are critical to our chapter 11 services contribute to our ability to efficiently handle any chapter 7 administration.
CHAPTER 9 In chapter 9 reorganizations, the need for accurate, cost-effective service is paramount. GCG delivers administrative services on time and on budget. Our team delivers a full range of services for chapter 9 cases including creditor notices, multimedia notification programs, and disbursements.
CHAPTER 15 GCG has the international experience to overcome the unique challenges of a chapter 15 administration. As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, and bankruptcy cases are linked to cross-border assets or proceedings, the interplay of multiple jurisdictions presents unique challenges. Our recent work in the Lupatech cross-border restructuring is one example of our capabilities in this area.
I had the pleasure of working closely with GCG, which served as the solicitation and distribution agent [in the Lupatech restructuring]. Throughout [the] process… I was impressed by GCG’s deep bench of resources, the professionalism and responsiveness of their team, and dedication exhibited by GCG’s Bankruptcy Group. The GCG team was available at a moment’s notice, day or night, to attend to critical needs required by Lupatech or its other professionals. I cannot overstate the personal comfort I enjoyed knowing that I could rely on GCG. – Joao Marcos C. Feiteiro, Lupatech S.A.
EXPERTISE CREDITORS’ COMMITTEES Having designed full-service administrative programs for many Creditors’ Committees, GCG understands the key role we play, and the need for a professional partner to help manage a committee’s administrative duties. In particular, Creditors’ Committees have hired GCG to assist with notice dissemination, provide automated and interactive call center services, as well as develop case-specific websites to disseminate important and timely case information.
SOLICITATION GCG’s solicitation team has unparalleled expertise in all aspects of the solicitation of votes in connection with a debtor’s plan of reorganization, whether pre- or post-filing. We routinely handle prepackaged bankruptcies, exchange offers, rights offerings, and consent solicitations. The team is expert in effecting service upon holders of publiclytraded securities (both debt and equity), and works regularly with DTC, Broadridge Financial and other broker nominees to ensure service of solicitation materials, proper collection, and voting.
LEGAL NOTICE GCG is a recognized leader in designing and implementing national and international legal notice programs. We can create various print, publication, email, internet, social media and any other specialized programs to fit the specific needs of any project. Our team utilizes the most well-respected advertising industry research, ensuring that each client’s notice program takes advantage of the best media and methods to reach as many potential affected parties as possible. Our noticing programs always meet the needs of each case, satisfying due process and any other specific legal requirements. No public notice program is too large for GCG – for example, in the Federal-Mogul chapter 11 case, GCG placed public notices in newspapers in 119 countries, employing 75 languages.
My firm has worked with GCG on several matters, both on the debtor side and creditor side, with varying degrees of complexity. In every situation, GCG has proven to be an expert in their field...their incredible level of responsiveness distinguishes them in a very competitive landscape and is the reason we continue to hire them.
