Goldin 2017 Update Through Q3

GA Update

The first three quarters of 2017 have been active and rewarding for Goldin (Goldin Associates, LLC and its affiliates Goldin Capital Advisors LLC and Goldin Maritime LLC).  The fourth quarter of 2017 and beyond augur continuing robust activity. We are grateful to our clients for the trust they place in us and remain committed to vindicating that trust and exceeding their expectations.


Goldin’s involvement in a number of major restructuring matters in 2017 includes advising both debtors and creditors. On the debtor side, the Firm has provided CRO services to Ezra, an international offshore oil company, and Lily Robotics, a camera drone start-up.  Goldin’s roles as company financial advisor include working with Pacific Andes/China Fishery, a subsidiary of Energy Futures, the Big Apple Circus and a major monoline insurance company.

Goldin has advised creditors and committees, both official and ad-hoc, in connection with several complex restructurings. These include a group of hedge funds invested in Puerto Rican general obligation debt and the official creditors’ committee in Sungevity.

Fiduciary Services

Goldin’s active fiduciary services practice includes roles as financial advisor to two SEC receivers, one involving the failed hedge fund Platinum Partners.  Goldin is also serving as trustee in Millennium Health and as a confidential financial advisor to the trustee of a major post-confirmation litigation trust, as well as financial advisor to the Examiner in Wonderwork.

Valuation Services

Goldin continues its leadership role providing solvency, valuation and damages assessment services. For instance, Goldin is working with various law firms, including Cleary Gottlieb, Cravath, DLA Piper, Hogan Lovells and Quinn Emanuel, as testifying and consulting experts in litigation matters involving these and related issues.


Goldin Maritime LLC, which offers advisory and oversight services to investors and financial institutions in connection with managing maritime assets, has been working with two major hedge funds on maritime investments and oversight.  Both funds have achieved significant operational savings and asset value appreciation.  Goldin has also undertaken a number of confidential mandates as an advisor on capital structure and restructuring in the maritime space.
