Mr. Schiller has spent his entire career in financial restructuring and M&A. He provides advice and testimony to parties involved in financially distressed and bankrupt organizations, whether they be creditors, debtors, equity holders, regulators or unions. He has over twenty-five years of experience in developing and assessing valuations, analyzing liquidity under various scenarios, creating alternative courses of action for distressed estates, providing expert testimony and negotiating settlements.

A founding member of Citigroup’s Financial Restructuring Group, he advised and represented diverse parties-in-interest in distressed situations, whether debtors, creditors, equity holders, or potential acquirors.

In 2012 he joined MAEVA Group, where he advised companies and unions in refinancing or negotiated settlements of disputes.

Mr. Schiller is a member of the American Bankruptcy Institute and an inactive member of the California Bar Association.
