Barnes & Thornburg’s deep bench includes skilled attorneys who advise clients in commercial, financing, bankruptcy, restructuring and M&A matters, with particular focus on distressed company transactions both in and out of bankruptcy court. The firm’s clients frequently include private equity and hedge funds, venture capital funds, independent sponsors, family offices, public and private corporations, and banks and other financial institutions.
We represent borrowers, lenders, acquirers and agents/trustees, in negotiating and documenting complex commercial transactions. Our attorneys advise on commercial loan originations (including senior and subordinated credit facilities) and exchange transactions, out-of-court restructuring transactions and advising on secondary market debt transactions.
As a full-service and client-focused firm, our team counsels clients in numerous industries, including technology, healthcare, manufacturing (including automotive, Tier 1 suppliers and heavy equipment), media and entertainment, healthcare, municipal and nonprofit corporations, retail, consumer products, food and beverage, and financial and business services.
With an interdisciplinary approach, we also routinely counsel clients in relation to bankruptcy, ABC, Article 9 foreclosures, and out-of-court restructuring matters, including representing clients as third-party purchasers in distressed M&A transactions and in special situations.
