Bankruptcy and mediation expert Frank A. Monaco will lead a strategic marketing initiative to promote the complimentary services of restructuring and turnaround management consulting firm Gavin/Solmonese and boutique investment banking firm Equity Partners HG.

The two firms have worked alongside each other on cases over the last two years, and hope to benefit from a combined marketing effort led by an industry veteran.

Monaco serves as managing director, Mediation & ADR Services for Gavin/Solmonese, where he engages with debtors, creditors’ committees and other interest holders in all manner of litigation and transactions. He has been a Chapter 11 trustee, liquidation trustee and discovery master, and has served as a mediator for more than 12 years.

Equity Partners provides merger and acquisitions and capital markets solutions such as debt and equity raises, enterprise sales and joint ventures for small to mid-sized companies in transition.

According to Ken Mann, senior managing director of Equity Partners, “This new marketing partnership will provide our relationships, as well as those of Gavin/Solmonese, with a streamlined approach to access the full range of services for all restructuring needs.”
