Distressed Asset Sales & Acquisitions

Achieving Strategic Goals Through the Acquisition of Distressed Assets

​Distressed assets can often lead the way to an entity achieving its strategic and financial goals — if they have the right legal advisers. Our attorneys have long-standing experience in advising both sellers and buyers in distressed assets. We use our intimate knowledge of bankruptcy court proceedings alongside our deep knowledge of corporate, tax, real estate, and other legal areas to craft the optimal solution for each client's individual goals.
