Our lawyers regularly represent clients interested in purchasing assets, business units, and entire operating businesses out of bankruptcy. Our experience ranges from straightforward single-asset acquisitions to complex billion-dollar-plus mergers and acquisition transactions. We help clients structure investments to minimize costly bidding wars, obtain protections such as break-up and topping fees, minimize the risks of successor liability, defer and/or reduce tax liabilities, and otherwise take advantage of the procedural and substantive protections offered by bankruptcy. Working with our corporate and tax lawyers where appropriate, we are able to handle all aspects of distressed M&A transactions. We also represent parties buying and selling distressed debt and bankruptcy claims.
