Private Equity

We regularly represent private equity funds (PE funds) in bankruptcy and restructuring matters throughout the United States. We have represented some of the country's largest PE funds and their portfolio companies in matters ranging from complex billion-dollar plus transactions to middle market bankruptcy cases. We represent our PE fund clients in all capacities — in acquiring businesses and assets from Chapter 11 or other insolvency proceedings, as providers of senior or subordinated debt, and as holders of preferred or common equity. We often advise PE funds regarding alternatives to bankruptcy, which may save time and expense. We also have substantial experience defending PE funds (and, occasionally, their principals) in bankruptcy-related litigation, including claims for breach of duty, subordination or recharacterization of debt, preference and fraudulent transfer claims, WARN Act litigation, and many other types of claims. Our practice is enhanced by our access to lawyers in our Corporate and Finance, Tax, and Litigation practices who specialize in the representation of PE funds and who have a deep understanding of the private equity industry.
