Paladin, a middle-market advisory firm driving value-creation through financial and operational consulting services, hired industry leaders, Lance Miller and Peter Richter, as partners of the firm.

With decades of combined experience, Lance and Peter have guided numerous organizations through operational and financial restructurings that have resulted in improved profitability and increased stakeholder value. The Paladin team continues to strengthen its client solutions with these two additions.

Lance specializes in helping clients through complex restructurings in challenging circumstances. Leveraging his vast experience as both a bankruptcy attorney and senior management consultant, he has secured successful outcomes for clients in transactions of varying sizes across multiple industries.

Peter has supported several organizations through complex transactions as a restructuring and financial advisor. Combining his broad business acumen with leadership, Peter provides immediate and sustained value for clients.

“Paladin is all about our people, so we are excited that Lance and Peter are joining our world class team, and I have no doubt they will both help grow and strengthen Paladin,” Scott Avila, managing partner at Paladin, said. “Lance brings a unique perspective and skill set, especially with his legal background, and truly understands the day-to-day pressures that management faces through a distress process.”

“And Peter has built a career that brings together a wealth of knowledge, skills and insights from corporate leadership and restructuring. He has been integral in helping numerous companies improve operations, source debt and equity capital, and monetize underperforming business segments.”

“I have always admired Paladin’s exceptional track record and fantastic reputation in the turnaround sector, so it is a real honor to join the company as we seize opportunities, take on challenges and deliver results.” Lance added.

“For me, Paladin sets the standard for the quality, teamwork and the undisputed leaders in how financial and operational consulting can and should create value. I am looking forward to being part of this team of diverse experts and delivering results for our clients.” Richter said.
