Dorsey’s Energy Industry Group will host its third webinar in a series, focusing on Distressed Energy Acquisitions:  Avoiding the Sinkhole of Successor Liability.  Given the current economic and regulatory environment, many distressed energy assets are likely to be on the market in the near future. This presents great opportunities for the stronger players in the energy sector, but potential buyers need to be conscious of the risk that they will acquire liabilities as well as assets when they pursue these opportunities. They also need to be aware of the various options for structuring acquisitions to avoid acquiring unwanted liabilities. Annette Jarvis and Tom Kelly, two of the partners in our Bankruptcy and Restructuring practice area with experience in the energy industry, and Peter Kaufman, Head of Restructuring and Distressed M&A at Gordian Group LLC, will discuss the risks involved and the options available for mitigating those risks.
