Our Differentiation

Glenwood is a boutique firm focusing on a select few client engagements with a refreshing roll-up-the-sleeves style. We focus on practical and bottom-line results, not lengthy, glossy power-point presentations. Our approach allows us to take a hands-on approach in working with management to reassure creditors and investors that the company is taking the critical steps needed to address its problems and maximize value. We provide stakeholders with an informed assessment of the core issues surrounding corporate viability and the recovery of value. We understand how to overcome divergent interests and assure clients of realistic solutions to contentious issues.
