Distressed M&A

When the market changes, a challenging environment creates new scenarios for investment.

The market dynamics of the longest run of a bull market, which defied gravity for years, has ended. As pressures on businesses mount, they are increasingly looking to investors to assist them in shaping their future business outlook and operations.

Decades of experience with distressed assets

Our restructuring and insolvency lawyers are backed by accomplished finance and M&A teams with decades of experience in representing companies, lenders, debtors, creditors and strategic investors in all aspects of financially distressed situations. They are skilled in the evaluation of investment opportunities and risks across asset classes and capital structures in bankruptcy proceedings and out-of-court deals. Our broad experience includes Chapter 11 sponsorships, Section 363 sales, and direct acquisitions. We also assist clients on tax structuring, financing, securities law requirements, antitrust, CFIUS and other regulatory approvals.

Hogan Lovells advises at all stages of distressed M&A matters, including takeover reorganization procedures, bidding strategies, compensation and benefits, as well as post-M&A closing issues. We have pride in the numerous examples where we helped to uncover value in transactions across the value chain, and in transformative deals that have empowered failing operations to become prosperous ventures.
