At Burr & Forman, we work with a distressed company's management and financial advisors to craft the best possible business solution. We are experienced in handling distressed mergers and acquisitions (M&A), whether in an out-of-court transaction, a state court receivership, Section 363 sale under the Bankruptcy Code, under a plan of reorganization, or in a prepackaged or other enforcement transaction.
Our team often represents stalking horse buyers and other bidders in bankruptcy 363 sales. Sellers in distress situations many times utilize a bankruptcy court sale as the best way to conduct an orderly sale process and achieve the best value for their creditors and stakeholders. Similarly, the purchasers of distressed assets appreciate the value and protections afforded in a bankruptcy court-blessed asset sale.
Our team at Burr & Forman has actively been involved in major bankruptcy proceedings in the Southeast and on the national level. Our substantial experience in this area includes representation of clients in the manufacturing, real estate, health care, agriculture, retail, education, and construction industries.
