Since its formation less than a year ago, Scouler & Company has grown four-fold to encompass more than a dozen professionals with more than twenty years of experience each in the financial services and restructuring industries. Scouler attributes his firm's fast-track growth to an increase in troubled companies resulting from the fallout of globalization, highly leveraged balance sheets and general economic conditions including a pending recession that he predicts will be deeper and longer than anticipated.
