We share strategies and tactics for surviving a financial hurricane including our own forecast and guidance for being prepared as the storm gets worse.  We have prepared an advanced “boot camp”on legal and practical issues that both healthy and struggling companies need to be aware of to cope, respond, and we hope thrive, in the current crisis.  We started with the questions our clients are asking. We added practical analysis and “actionable” recommendations. The result is a crash course in survival skills for senior executives, M&A and corporate development professionals, and legal and finance executives.

We cover key bankruptcy, M&A and restructuring issues. We address personal liability issues for executives and directors.

Selected Topics Will Include:

  • Dealing with Distressed Third Parties – Counterparty Risks
  • Personal Liability Issues for Executives and Directors
  • Executive Compensation Issues
  • The Distressed Company – Workouts and Beyond
  • M&A Strategies in Times of Stress
  • Carve Outs and Reorganization of Troubled Subsidiaries

The “deal window” in distressed M&A opportunities can open and close very quickly. Learn more about distressed deal making strategies:

  • Loans to own and credit bids
  • “ABC” acquisitions
  • 363 transactions
  • Counterparty risks
  • Pre packaged and “lightning” deals
  • Foreclosure and sheriff’s sales
  • Solvency opinions and fraudulent conveyances
