Special Situations

Kirkland’s Special Situations Group partners with investors and companies on tailored, innovative capital and liquidity solutions.

Special Situations transactions generally involve the combination of debt-like downside protection with the potential for equity-like upside participation in stressed, distressed and event-driven situations, where underlying assets are discounted due to illiquidity, market disruption, business cyclicality or an unsustainable capital structure.

By bringing together Kirkland’s market-leading debt finance, private equity and M&A, restructuring, capital markets, and investment funds practices, our Special Situations Group brings creative solutions to clients considering these complex global situations.
