About TAP

The TAP Restructuring Resources Group is part of the TAP Financial Partners family of companies that also includes the TAP Advisory Group, a corporate services provider, and Allbridge Partners, which provides capital raising and other fund services. 

Our restructuring team provides a lifeline to struggling companies through a roll-up-your-sleeves approach that stops the financial bleeding by:

Creating strategic plans implemented by hands-on, senior-staffed teams
Negotiating with lenders, creditors, and the IRS
Bringing short and long-term financing options
Offering strong opinions and making tough decisions
Featuring partners with decades of experience and more than $1 billion in value generation




In this uncertain economic climate, small and medium-sized enterprises (with revenues typically between $/£ 10 million and $/£ 100 million) may require a roll-up-your-sleeves approach to restructuring. This is especially true during bankruptcy reorganizations and DIP financing situations.

Previously viable companies can be challenged by a variety of circumstances:

COVID-19’s global impact
Transitions brought on by changes in ownership, retirement/personnel losses, and generational succession
Inability to meet investment goals
Overleveraged assets
Excessive debt
Failed merger, acquisition, or new product introduction




TAP offers a wide variety of financial services that assist clients in workout situations, all included in a 13-week plan that leads organizations to break even status:

Forecasting materials preparation
Business plan review
Working capital and expenditure analysis
Supply chain management
Financial statement reporting
Capital structure advisory
Bankruptcy services
Commercial contract review
Loan and lease agreement review
Capital raising advisory
Mergers & Acquisitions advisory
