Workouts and Restructuring

Axiom empowers you to efficiently manage the challenges to your loan portfolio by providing access to the right legal expertise.

The chaotic economic environment brought on by the coronavirus pandemic has led to a rise in distressed companies. Lenders and creditors face an unprecedented challenge of navigating a high volume of loans in distress. The unpredictable nature of this crisis means that lenders are faced with managing workouts at an unknown volume without a clear timeframe for economic recovery.

Legal counsel have limited options

Sending distressed risk work to outside counsel as overflow is inefficient and costly. Training internal staff to provide quick impact can be extremely difficult, if not impossible.

Assigning current team members to manage distressed risk is not viable long term and can also hurt critical workflows already in progress.

“Without more granular risk management… we could get a wave of substantial bankruptcies and [that] could feed into a financial crisis.”
James Bullard President Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis
