NautaDutilh has assisted New York-based brand management company Bluestar Alliance with its acquisition of fashion brand Scotch & Soda. After the bankruptcy of Amsterdam based Scotch & Soda, Bluestar Alliance negotiated and agreed on an asset deal. The acquisition by Bluestar Alliance will allow for the continuation of the iconic brand and its products across key markets.
Short and intense period
"Moving fast after bankruptcy is key to a successful offer. We are happy to have been part of this process. It was a short and intense period. And it is very satisfying that our client completed this transaction," says Marc Orval, partner and head of NautaDutilh's Restructuring, Insolvency & Distressed Situations team. "It is a completely different dynamic from an M&A deal. It is amazing to work together so intensely and effectively with a team made up of experts in various specialties within the firm," commented Willianne van Zandwijk, head of our London office and partner in the Corporate M&A group.
