SFGH partner Mark Melickian to moderate West LegalEdcenter/Financial Poise webinar entitled, "BANKRUPTCY TRANSACTIONS - 301: Representing Asset Purchasers in Bankruptcy"

On September 13, 2018, SFGH partner Mark Melickian will moderate a West LegalEdcenter/Financial Poise webinar series entitled, "BANKRUPTCY TRANSACTIONS - 301: Representing Asset Purchasers in Bankruptcy."

Representing an asset purchaser in a bankruptcy proceeding presents unique benefits and challenges for a professional business advisor. Companies considering acquiring assets out of bankruptcy must  understand more than the simple concept of acquiring the target assets “free and clear,” under the bankruptcy code. As such, professionals advising these companies must understand and be able to counsel their clients regarding various matters, such as the benefits and drawbacks of serving as a  “stalking horse,” asset purchaser; drafting and negotiating the terms of an asset purchase agreement  and sale order with the bankrupt debtor and other parties involved in the bankruptcy proceedings; strategies for acquiring assets at auction or by alternative means; and seeking bankruptcy court approval of a proposed transaction. This webinar focuses on understanding these concepts and addressing best practices for advanced reorganization practitioners and advisors.
