This course provides a broad overview of the financial, economic, and strategic reasons for major corporate restructuring transactions. Various options exist when a company is in financial distress. The course focuses on two main avenues: out-of-court restructurings and in-court reorganizations. Students learn to find solutions that protect the interests of all parties in the bankruptcy process, such as trustees, secured lenders, governmental entities, indenture trustees, liquidators, secured and unsecured creditors, creditors’ committees, shareholders, and defendants in avoidance actions. Students also learn how to negotiate more effectively during restructurings.
