“I first saw Lyon Capital in action in the early 1990's when I recommended them to a real estate developer client of mine who needed assistance in negotiating with the Resolution Trust Corporation to restructure the debt of a portfolio of properties. Lyon Capital accomplished more in one month than we were able to accomplish in 18 months of agony. Lyon Capital is one of the most creative advisory firms I have come across. They think outside of the box to increase the pie and remove obstacles to closing a deal.”
