Gibson Brands Emerges From Chapter 11

Paul, Weiss advised an ad hoc committee of Gibson Brands, Inc. noteholders, led by KKR, in connection with Gibson’s successful reorganization under chapter 11. The Nashville, Tennessee-based company, an iconic American manufacturer of guitars, other musical instruments and professional audio equipment, commenced its pre-negotiated chapter 11 cases in May 2018 after entering into a restructuring support agreement with our clients. Under the reorganization plan, which received court approval in October 2018, our clients received the overwhelming majority of Gibson’s post-restructuring equity.

The Paul, Weiss team included bankruptcy partner Brian Hermann and counsel Robert Britton and Diane Meyers; corporate partners Lawrence Wee, Catherine Goodall, Raphael Russo and Brian Kim and counsel Chaim Theil and Bruce Gruder; litigation partners Jacqueline Rubin, Daniel Kramer and Aidan Synnott; tax partner Lindsay Parks; and employee benefits counsel Jason Ertel.
