Representative Matters

  • Represented a digital media company in its sale to a worldwide media conglomerate, guiding the client through several complex tax structuring components, including a recapitalization prior to the closing.
  • Represented a private equity client in its acquisition of a freight services company and various affiliates. As the target’s parent company was in default to its lenders, Goldberg Kohn helped structure and consummate the transaction in the form of a private Uniform Commercial Code sale, negotiating heavily with the existing lenders and a number of other constituents.
  • Represented a client, a retailer of bar supplies, liquor accessories and related products for over 80 years, in its sale to a private equity company.
  • Represented a client in its acquisition of a company’s stock specializing in dessert products. Coordinating the buyer-side of the sale involved a complicated structure and capitalization to address concerns of the client and other investors, as well as negotiating and consummating new third-party financing. This transaction required a focused interplay between the firm’s corporate, tax and employment practices, as well as leading out-of-state affiliate firms to help address certain jurisdictional-specific issues.
