Preserving Enterprise Value

Cutwater Restructuring Advisors focuses on solving very complex and difficult problems for companies in need of intervention.  Once solved, with our affiliated companies, we grow and bring our clients to an Optimum exit. 

Venture capital and private equity groups are not geared to take over and restructure a company in trouble prior to an investment...We Are!

- Christopher Riley, Founder/CEO


Our licensed and experienced professionals enter a delicate situation to save a company from shut down. 
We can take on:

  • a Chief Restructuring Officer role

  • gain a unified acceptance of a restructuring plan

  • avoid bankruptcy, and

  • implement the restructuring plan. 

With our specialized subsidiaries, Izola Technology and Opinione Investigations, we can forensically get to the bottom of most any sensitive situation. 

Once cleared, our sister company, United Cutwater, can then work with the stakeholders of the company to develop and fund a strategic growth and exit plan.  We bring our own capital and work with strategic co-investors.
