Orrick’s Total Access Japan Event Series provides entrepreneurs business, tactical, and legal education through webinars, complimentary panels and networking events.

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the globe, first and foremost, we do hope you, your family and your community stay safe and healthy. We would like to take a moment to let you know that we are here and ready to respond to this unprecedent public health and economic crisis and to support your needs during this challenging time.

The spread of COVID-19 has caused and continues to cause substantial economic slow-down in many countries and many companies are facing financial difficulties. As in the last financial crisis when Japanese firms such as Nomura Securities acquired the EMEA operations of Lehman Brothers and Mitsubishi UFJ provided a substantial capital injection to and formation of joint ventures with Morgan Stanley, the current economic climate may present new opportunities for Japanese companies to globalize their operations. In this webinar, our Santa Monica partner Justin Yi and Tokyo partner Hiroki Sugita will exchange views on the current climate in distressed M&A in the US under COVID-19, including the following topics:

  • Overview of Distressed M&A
  • Climate for U.S. Distressed M&A in light of COVID-19
  • Common deal structures and expected timelines for Distressed M&A transactions
  • Other Distressed M&A considerations
  • Opportunities for Japanese buyers

The webinar will follow an open discussion format between our presenters, with opportunities to ask questions.  We encourage you to submit questions ahead of time so our presenters can conduct any necessary research prior to the event.

To submit your question, please contact Tokyo Marketing.
