Bankruptcy Proceedings Assistance - Help Bankruptcy & Restructuring - Merrill DataSite

“One of our biggest challenges for seeking bankruptcy protection lies in managing the paper storm unleashed by bankruptcy proceedings.”

In the past, when filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, team personnel would be required to provide bankruptcy assistance, such as research, gather, collate, print and mail a series of financial documents and forms to all parties involved: creditors, accountants, attorneys, court personnel, judges and consultants. The work-flow issues of bankruptcy proceedings were resource intensive and often resulted in a logistical challenge for those managing the process.

Today, many companies are discovering that the traditional paper-based information delivery methods are insufficient to reach goals and timelines. Instead, filers are now deploying a secure virtual deal room (VDR) solution which allows them to start and complete the process more efficiently while consuming fewer corporate resources.

As bankruptcy regulations grow more complex and filing deadlines grow tighter, companies need a better, more efficient way to comply. Increasingly, organizations are using VDRs such as the premier Merrill DataSite solution to save time, minimize risk and gain more proactive control over the process.

Explore your options without disrupting day-to-day operations

Because Merrill understands the importance of confidentiality, we do not outsource hosting, scanning or any other vital aspects of the bankruptcy process. Every step in the process is managed by a Merrill professional, and every document remains confidential and secure once received into the custody of our team.

With Merrill DataSite, you can manage the claims and general administration, disclosure statements and restructuring plans of the bankruptcy estate in a fraction of the time that it would take in a paper-driven due diligence process. Getting started is easy − Merrill DataSite is designed for rapid deployment. Our clients enjoy:
