Sound navigation through troubled times


“EHI professionals have a very practical and effective way of analyzing and understanding the issues involved in whatever companies they’re advising.”

— Albert Kennedy of law firm Tonkon Torp, Portland

“Having EHI in a case is like hitting the trifecta: quality expertise and advice on a wide range of business solutions, guaranteed integrity and transparency in the process, and the best possible results.”

— Pamela Webster of law firm Buchalter, Los Angeles

When companies face financial challenges and need both an honest assessment and a strategy that’s best for the business, they can count on EHI.

EHI’s experienced executives are experts in business strategy, finance and organizational management. We have a deep understanding of debtors, creditors and the courts, giving us insight into the goals of each side and how flexible they can be.

Our knowledge – developed through our long history of negotiating with financial institutions and with federal and state taxing authorities – enables us to provide an unparalleled level of service for our clients. Doing work both as a turnaround consultant and asset recovery expert further sets us apart.


We tailor our work to the specific challenges of each company, lender or financial institution, providing a straightforward and realistic assessment. When it’s possible to keep the business going, we work toward that with a solid strategy to move toward profitability. If that is unlikely, we provide our clients with the best plan for closing, selling or liquidating the business. We don’t enter the process with an expected outcome, but look to each client’s specific circumstances to direct our approach.

During more than 25 years managing reorganizations, workouts, orderly closures and serving as a receiver, we have worked under three guiding principles that continue to define us today. Act decisively. Resolve the situation quickly. Commit all necessary resources to the assignment.

EHI offers you a solid, thoroughly considered plan that will minimize your costs, maximize your recovery and enable you to move forward.


Experience provides a valuable foundation for resolving complex financial situations – and our team has an abundance of it.

EHI’s executives specialize in business strategy, finance and organizational management. They also are skilled at mediating and bringing to swift resolution the differences between interested parties, including creditors’ committees, boards of directors, management teams and shareholders – always with continued focus on the primary goal: the needs of the client.
