Acquisition of a Maple-Sugar Bush in a Bankruptcy Situation

Langlois represented the acquirer of the corporate operator of a maple sugar-bush and an inn located in Quebec. As the operator’s shares were held by a bankrupt foreign corporation, Langlois negotiated and structured the transaction, and worked in collaboration with Japanese courts and insolvency authorities in order to obtain from the Tokyo District Court the authorizations required for the acquisition of all of its issued and outstanding shares.
