BRG Capstone/BRG Ranked No. 2 in Q1 2016 List of Top Crisis Management Firms
BRG Capstone/Berkeley Research Group LLC was ranked second on the list of Top Crisis Management Firms, by volume, in The Deal’s bankruptcy league tables for Q1 2016. Managing Directors Christopher Kearns, Peter Chadwick, and Mark Shankweiler were ranked in the top 10 on The Deal’s Q1 list of Top Crisis Management Professionals.
The Deal’s bankruptcy league tables consider active U.S. bankruptcy cases with debtors having liabilities of $10 million or more. Rankings are based on the aggregation of those asset values. The Deal ranks the top investment banks, law firms, crisis management firms, and non-investment banks, as well as the respective professionals, by the volume of liabilities of bankruptcy deals advised for that quarter. During the first quarter of 2016, BRG advised on 47 active bankruptcy cases, of which 35 had liabilities greater than $10 million and aggregate liabilities of $197.1 billion. The Deal has consistently ranked Capstone Advisory Group, whose principals joined BRG to form BRG Capstone business unit on June 1, 2015, as one of the “Top Three” crisis management firms by volume every quarter since the second quarter of 2011 (20 consecutive quarterly rankings).
