CohnReznick, an advisory, assurance and tax firm, formed a transactions and turnaround advisory practice, integrating the firm’s transactional, restructuring and dispute resolution, valuation, and project finance advisory services under one umbrella. Claudine Cohen will lead the new group as managing principal.

The practice will help clients with M&A opportunities, the financing of new capital projects, business and asset valuations, restructurings, bankruptcy negotiations, and exit management.

”We structured the new practice to allow for on-demand mobilization of seasoned professionals who collaboratively will design and execute a path forward with clients as they navigate complex situations or make a game-changing decision,” said Cohen, who was recognized last year by the Global M&A Network as one of its Top Women Dealmakers. “Now more than ever during these uncertain times, we plan to help clients achieve optimal outcomes that protect and grow stakeholder value with a service approach founded on impact, insight and integrity.”

Last year, CohnReznick brought in eight restructuring professionals to be prepared for client needs in the event of an economic downturn.
