By combining extensive M&A experience with restructuring and bankruptcy expertise Delphi has established our successful Distressed M&A team. The team has extensive experience from sell side transactions as well as representing strategic and financial buyers in a wide range of industrial sectors, which combined with the expertise of our insolvency practise creates invaluable experience for distressed transactions.
Whether buy side or sell side, acquisitions and divestments in a distressed environment often face unique challenges. A normal bilateral transaction will in a distressed environment often turn into a multilateral process where it is crucial to consider different stakeholders rights and requirements in order to ensure value and mitigate risks. Further, time will be a critical factor when negotiating distressed acquisitions and disposals in a limited market.
Together with our clients we develop an appropriate process strategy and transaction structure for the situation at hand. Thus, our deal teams are tailored in each and every situation to ensure necessary knowledge and experience.
In addition to M&A and restructuring lawyers, our multidisciplinary teams encompass all the legal professionals required to successfully get to closing (i.e. specialists in banking and finance, capital markets, real estate, employment law, corporate law, antitrust and other regulatory approvals, environmental compliance etc). Delphi has also a comprehensive network of leading law firms in the Nordics and internationally and can therefore offer cross-border advise in an integrated, high-quality and cost-effective way.
Delphi’s team is devoted to maximizing client value in what is inevitably time critical, complex and sometimes unpredictable situations.
