For many reasons, sellers and purchasers of distressed assets often prefer the vehicle of a bankruptcy Section 363 sale to consummate the sale of a business or its assets. Reasons for the preference include the more effective resolution and treatment of transaction-related challenges – including environmental issues, tax and pension obligations and employment-related issues – and the unwinding of complex corporate structures that require a buyer to address intercompany debt obligations.

The Group often works with colleagues across the firm’s specialized practice areas to develop sophisticated solutions in response to the complex issues that arise across the spectrum of M&A transactions – whether of a publicly-traded company, a closely-held limited liability company or a “mom-and-pop” operation.
