Schulte's Special Situations Group provides seamless, cross-disciplinary support to direct lending and private investment clients facing distressed situations. Our overall focus on private capital affords us a comprehensive view – including fund structures, tax structures, and regulatory and compliance matters – that few firms can match. The team provides a consistent and coordinated approach through deep collaboration among our lawyers in special situations across our Business Reorganization, Finance, Litigation, Mergers & Acquisitions and Tax Groups.
Drawing on our cross-practice experience in representing private funds, we bring a holistic approach to counseling our clients. We advise on the full life cycle of special situations matters. We perform comprehensive, interdisciplinary reviews of complex capital structures, helping clients understand the relative rights of various interest holders.
Special situations often require collaboration by our clients with one or more other parties who have aligned interests in order to achieve their investment objectives. Because Schulte and the Special Situations team advises the full spectrum of private capital clients, we regularly build and advise committees and consortiums around joint investments, whether those investments are structured as club deals or the group acts together through a committee.
