Debtors & Company Representation

Our deep experience with corporate restructurings positions us to advise on the opportunities and challenges of insolvency transactions. We combine our strong experience with corporate finance with knowledge of distressed financings and workouts to advise our corporate clients on investment opportunities in distressed business assets.

Distressed Investments

We represent buyers of assets and operating businesses in out-of-court workouts and restructurings and in formal insolvency proceedings, sales of debtors’ assets and sales pursuant to reorganizations under the Bankruptcy Code. Our team has represented purchasers of the assets of distressed airlines, hotels, health care facilities, financial services companies, medical equipment suppliers, manufacturers and automotive suppliers.

Acquisition Strategies

We have found that liquidating substantial portions of distressed businesses assets not only maximizes distributions to an insolvent firm’s creditors but can also streamline operations to allow a struggling company to successfully restructure. Drawing on a multidisciplinary legal team of attorneys focused on tax, real estate, intellectual property, corporate and labor law, we leverage strategies that maximize value and control buyers’ risks in the volatile environment of bankruptcy acquisitions.

We have been ranked as leaders in out-of-court restructurings, reorganizations and liquidation by Chambers USA and the U.S. News-Best Lawyers’ "Best Law Firms" survey.
