The purchase of a “distressed” business must be undertaken with a great deal of diligence and caution so as to avoid (or at least limit) the purchaser’s exposure to the liabilities of the distressed business. The attorneys in our Firm’s Business & Finance Department have considerable experience in assisting purchasers in navigating the myriad issues that arise in a transaction of such type. In addition to conventional purchases of a distressed business, we have also represented clients in connection with their purchase of the assets of a distressed business pursuant to a Uniform Commercial Code foreclosure sale or under a Section 363 bankruptcy sale. If you are considering the purchase of a distressed business, please contact Paul T. Rushton, the Chair of our Business & Finance Department, to learn more about these issues. Paul’s e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

However, many business owners make the mistake of assuming that they own the exclusive rights to their brand without taking the requisite steps to establish such exclusivity. For that reason, business owners should take the time to better understand what brand name protections are available under the applicable law and how to obtain them. This article describes the available brand name protections and suggests the ways that business owners should consider and ultimately utilize some or all of such protections.
