Learn some best practices for advanced reorganization practitioners and advisors.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) September 11, 2018
Corporate transactions are fraught with complicated legal, business, and financial issues. And transactions in the context of a bankruptcy proceeding often adds a further layer of complexity. Whether representing an asset purchaser seeking to acquire assets “free and clear” of liens and encumbrances; trading claims against a bankrupt company; or negotiating and drafting orders governing the use of a bankruptcy company’s cash, businesses and their advisors must have a robust understanding of the issues they face. This Financial Poise BANKRUPTCY TRANSACTIONS-301 series provides tools for business owners and their advisors to navigate through the landscape of bankruptcy transactions, demystify esoteric concepts, and discuss best practices for advanced professionals working on these matters.
The first episode of the series, Representing Asset Purchasers in Bankruptcy, airs on September 13th at 3:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Mark S. Melickian of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger. He is joined by David S. Lorry of Versa Capital Management LLC, Gary Marsh of Dentons US LLP, Michael Riela of Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP, and Russell Silberglied of Richards, Layton & Finger, PA.
Representing an asset purchaser in a bankruptcy proceeding presents unique benefits and challenges for a professional business advisor. Companies considering acquiring assets out of bankruptcy must understand more than the simple concept of acquiring the target assets “free and clear,” under the bankruptcy code. As such, professionals advising these companies must understand and be able to counsel their clients regarding various matters, such as the benefits and drawbacks of serving as a “stalking horse,” asset purchaser; drafting and negotiating the terms of an asset purchase agreement and sale order with the bankrupt debtor and other parties involved in the bankruptcy proceedings; strategies for acquiring assets at auction or by alternative means; and seeking bankruptcy court approval of a proposed transaction. This webinar focuses on understanding these concepts and addressing best practices for advanced reorganization practitioners and advisors.
