  • Webcast

 Shearman & Sterling hosted a series of partner-led calls to answer your COVID-19 questions, including industry trends and the legal and business implications to the pandemic. The calls took place Tuesday through Thursday, March 31–April 2 and  April 7–April 9.

For those with capital to spend, low commodity prices and market unrest has created opportunities to acquire assets and distressed companies, including acquisitions of asset packages, acquisitions of companies, and take-private transactions. On this call, Nathan Meredith (Dallas-Mergers & Acquisitions), Jeremy Kennedy (Houston-Project Development & Finance), Rob Freedman (New York-Project Development & Finance), John Beahn (Washington, D.C.-CFIUS) discussed considerations involved in these transactions, including:

  • Acquisitions Outside of Bankruptcy Court
  • Acquisitions During the Bankruptcy Process
  • CFIUS and other Regulatory Issues

Sarah McLean (Austin/Houston-Mergers & Acquisitions) moderated this call.
