Key Benefits

Our long history of management advisors, since 1992 has produced a very compelling list of benefits for using the Sherwood Partners / third-party approach to debt negotiations.

Time Savings (ROT | Return on Time)

If your company is at a critical juncture, management usually still needs to focus on the current and future business activities and not hassle with the creditors and other interested parties (the mistakes of yesterday). Sherwood Partners takes on the responsibility to deal with the complex details of negotiations and deal making to improve your financial situations and management is free to focus on the company’s current operations. We have the history of dealing as a third party and can save the company and their team a tremendous amount of time, pressure and therefore increase the company’s path to success.

Credible And Objective Approach

Using an experience independent firm, like Sherwood Partners inserts credibility and objectivity. Many of the major creditors have already worked with our team of professionals. By reputation, they know we represent the facts and “get down to the business at hand”. They realize that we work toward a workable and fair situation for all parties. Furthermore, we offer a fresh perspective and facilitate constructive and smart results.

Serious Intentions

When a third-party makes the hard telephone calls, creditors are aware of the seriousness of the situation. With the Sherwood Partners experience, the creditors realize that they must view your corporate obligations to them in a different light.

In debt reductions and renegotiations, Sherwood Partners focuses on the following for your company:

  • Restore credibility between all parties
  • Provide accurate and timely information to your creditors and establish straightforward relationships as the basis for negotiation
  • Manage your creditors to preserve an on-going relationship with your company after the restructuring/renegotiations is complete
  • Repair strained vendor/customer relationships with our firm’s credibility, communications and renewed cooperation
  • Manage expectation

These relationships are most fragile and recognize that your creditors represent one of the most important relationships in your business. Our team works carefully with each creditor to ensure the integrity and that goodwill is preserved. We set the stage to allow the relationships move forward on stronger footing and with improved communication.
