The Next Wave of Distressed Mergers and Acquisitions by Trevor Scott & Peter Roth

Farris Partner Trevor Scott and Farris Associate Peter Roth have published an article, entitled “The Next Wave of Distressed Mergers and Acquisitions,” in the 2009/2010 CCCA/ACCJE Corporate Counsel Directory and Yearbook.

The article asserts that “the upcoming wave of distressed Mergers & Acquisitions will be shaped by the emergence of new players, with new tactics and motivations, as well as new and developing rules for distressed M&A transactions within the Canadian insolvency process” and addresses the potential concerns of directors and officers with respect to their “risk of personal liability, which risks can be mitigated with the use of transparent and thorough sale processes, and compromise mechanisms.”
