“Bridgepoint professionals managed a complex bankruptcy case ($50M frozen food manufacturer with lots of inter-partner litigation) and which retained my company to sell the business. I found that they brought instant credibility to the process, to have excellent financial knowledge, to understand the bankruptcy maze, and to have high integrity. They achieved great results for our mutual client and was a pleasure to work with.”
– Ken Mann, Owner, Equity Partners, Inc.
