Blog Introduction and Launch

WELCOME TO THE NEW ETG WEBSITE!
ETG Capital is the brain-child of two singularly determined bankruptcy attorneys, David Tawil and Steve Azarbad. Mr. Tawil practiced bankruptcy law at Davis Polk, and Skadden Arps. Mr. Azarbad is a former associate at Weil Gotshal and Skadden Arps.
Prior to founding ETG Capital, Tawil and Azarbad were Directors at Credit Suisse. While at Credit Suisse, the talented duo co-founded and co-headed the highly successful Trade Receivable Protection (TRiPs) program, Credit Suisse’s Put Option business, within the Leveraged Finance department of the esteemed investment bank.
Among savvy CFOs, corporate treasurers, and credit risk managers—representing the Fortune 50; wholesalers; and, manufacturers from North America to Asia—the names Tawil and Azarbad are virtually synonymous with high-risk and distressed credit. Both gentlemen are routinely invited to speak at credit industry conferences, worldwide, where they offer their Wall Street perspective on industry giants in distress.
