The 2020 US M&A/Private Equity Forum: Into the Deep: The Pros and Cons of Bankruptcy Acquisitions

Topics: Corporate Legal, Law Firms, M&A, On-Demand Webinars

The Thomson Reuters Institute is pleased to present a five-part exploration of the US middle-market deals environment in the shadow of COVID-19. Our diverse and experienced faculty offers important guidance on emerging opportunities and regulatory considerations for M&A professionals across the nation. Our third installment examines innovative middle-market banking strategies in the current deals environment.

As COVID-19 continues to reshape the economic shoreline, dealmakers are questioning whether their current M&A strategies should include opportunities from the distressed marketplace.  Yet before bringing barrels of dry powder into turbulent tides, it is important for dealmakers to consider both the costs and benefits of buying businesses that are taking on water.  Our session will take a comprehensive look at best practices around for distressed assets, including timing the buy, assessing liability, navigating current or pending litigation, and adopting protective actions throughout the course of the deal.
