Why breaking up is never easy - key issues with distressed asset sales

A taxing time for Toys R Us

Partner and Co-Head of the Restructuring & Insolvency practice at Stevens & Bolton LLP, Tim Carter, has recently contributed a practice note to LexisNexis which looks at the different legal and practical considerations which commonly arise whenever purchasing assets from a distressed seller, or one which is undergoing a formal insolvency process, as opposed to a solvent vendor.  

In this practice note Tim considers some of the key distinguishing features in the case of a distressed M&A transaction including in terms of risk allocation, timing and payment terms. The practice note was prepared in close collaboration with corporate PSL, Kathryn Saunders.
