The Weinstein Company's Bankruptcy and Related Asset Sale

On March 19, 2018, The Weinstein Company Holdings LLC (“TWC”) filed a voluntary petition for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. In connection with the filing, the company also entered into a “stalking horse” agreement with an affiliate of Lantern Asset Management (“Lantern”), under which Lantern will purchase substantially all of the assets of TWC, subject to certain conditions including approval of the Bankruptcy Court. Cravath is representing TWC in connection with the Chapter 11 case, the transaction with Lantern and related debtor‑in‑possession financing.

The Cravath team includes partners Paul H. Zumbro and George E. Zobitz and associates Paul L. Sandler and Stephanie A. Marshak on restructuring matters; partner Karin A. DeMasi and associates Lauren Roberta Kennedy, David Kumagai and Claire E. O’Brien on litigation matters; partner Andrew C. Elken and associate Andrew M. Wark on M&A matters; partner Michael S. Goldman and associate Sanjay Murti on financing matters; partner Eric W. Hilfers and associate Matthew Cantor on executive compensation and benefits matters; and partners Andrew W. Needham and Kara L. Mungovan and associate Richard Bohm on tax matters. Catriela Cohen also worked on restructuring matters and Tianyang Lin worked on M&A matters.
