Kirkland Advises Gordon Brothers on Sale of ORSAY Brand

Kirkland & Ellis advised Gordon Brothers on the sale of the global ORSAY brand, archives and related trademarks and other intellectual property to a private investor from the Czech Republic. The financial details of the deal are confidential. 


The private investor will continue to invest in the omni-channel women’s fashion brand and grow ORSAY’s presence in Europe online, in stores and with existing franchisees.


Global advisory and investment firm Gordon Brothers acquired the ORSAY brand in March 2022 after Orsay GmbH had entered into insolvency proceedings under self-administration in January.


The Kirkland team advising Gordon Brothers was led by transactional partner Hendrik Braun and included debt finance partner Alexander Längsfeld, as well as transactional associates Tamara Zehentbauer and Johannes Rowold.
