Prior to a bankruptcy filing, GCG works with clients, their counsel and financial advisors to develop a comprehensive noticing and administration program that can help ensure a seamless process in the days leading to the case filing and at other critical junctures in a bankruptcy case. With many former bankruptcy practitioners on staff, GCG is uniquely positioned to provide meaningful consultation on many aspects of a bankruptcy filing, including providing comprehensive administrative services.
GCG’s proprietary software and processes ensure the efficient creation of a creditor matrix and a database to track all noticing, with meticulous attention by our team of lawyers to ensure that each order, motion or other filing is sent timely to all required parties, regardless of location or method of delivery. To accommodate clients' noticing needs and demanding deadlines, we have the latest FedEx pick-up deadline in the industry, 12:30 a.m. (Central time), for most overnight deliveries. Further, with offices on the west coast, we take advantage of time zone differences, and are available whenever necessary to ensure that our clients' needs are met on time.
PUBLICATION AND MEDIA OUTREACH
GCG's in-house legal noticing specialists can design customized, cost-effective noticing plans, including placement of legal notices in local, national or international publications; our team can also design comprehensive multi-media campaigns, including cutting-edge ads strategically placed on industry websites, as needed.
Our proprietary programs, backed by our expert quality assurance team, ensure accurate and efficient claim intake and processing.
Our graphics team can design a website tailored specifically for each case we administer. Easy to navigate, our interactive websites post key documents, such as bar date notices and claim forms, and include important information, such as upcoming hearings and deadlines. Our websites also provide claim search engines that make it easy to see the status of filed claims.
SCHEDULE AND SOFA PREPARATION
GCG’s software engineers have developed state-of-the art programs to ensure that the preparation of Schedules and Statements of Financial Affairs (SOFAs) are created accurately and within demanding deadlines. Our dedicated Schedules team works closely with counsel and the debtors personnel and financial advisors to manage the process of capturing all required information, storing the data securely and categorizing it accurately.
BALLOTING AND SOLICITATION
GCG’s balloting and solicitation work has been acclaimed by courts as impressive. Using proprietary software and processes, GCG's stand-alone solicitation team masters any solicitation, regardless of the size of the voting classes and the number of debtor entities. GCG's team is expert at handling solicitations for holders of publicly-held securities, both equity and debt, whether traded in the US or on foreign exchanges. With a unique proprietary program that allows clients to view balloting results in real-time, GCG is the clear leader in the industry.
All disbursements are reviewed by our quality control team to ensure that all payments are made timely and accurately, regardless of the size of the claimant base.
