You must read the following notice before sending an e-mail message to Robins Kaplan LLP.

Any information that you send us in an e-mail message should not be confidential or otherwise privileged information. Sending us an e-mail message will not make you a client of Robins Kaplan LLP. We do not accept representation until we have had an opportunity to evaluate your matter, including but not limited to an ethical evaluation of whether we are in a conflict position to represent you. Accordingly, the information you provide to us in an e-mail should not be information for which you would have an expectation of confidentiality.

If you are interested in having us represent you, you should call us so we can determine whether the matter is one for which we are willing or able to accept professional responsibility. We will not make this determination by e-mail communication. The telephone numbers and addresses for our offices are listed on this page. We reserve the right to decline any representation. We may be required to decline representation if it would create a conflict of interest with our other clients.

By accepting these terms, you are confirming that you have read and understood this important notice.

The bankruptcy sale process can be time-consuming and cumbersome. We help our clients understand never to underestimate the advantages to the buyer and the value to the seller to be free and clear. At Robins Kaplan LLP, our acquisition and sales attorneys provide collaborative, industry-focused counsel to assist clients in acquiring or selling distressed or other assets inside or outside of a formal bankruptcy process. Our acquisition and sales attorneys often work closely with a client’s mergers and acquisition professionals, including appropriate outside financial, tax and legal counsel. When it comes to large, complex sales and acquisitions, we believe working collaboratively with independent, specialized experts is a winning combination that helps our clients maximize the value of their transactions.

Our experience with respect to corporate situations, including distressed circumstances, commercial financing arrangements, secured transactions and the corporate bankruptcy process forms an integral part of our clients’ strategic acquisition planning. We assist in:

  • Identifying aspects of an acquisition target’s current debt and equity structure that may create opportunities for leverage or cost-savings
  • Structuring an acquisition or sale plan that may incorporate foreclosure, a formal bankruptcy or a work-out process
  • Reviewing existing and proposed financing agreements, operating agreements, and other corporate documents to ensure that our client’s strategic acquisition plan is sound before it is implemented

They do not and should not be construed to create an expectation of result in any other transaction, as all transactions are dependent upon their own unique fact situation and applicable law.
