Merisant Corporation

Young Conaway acted as co-counsel, along with Sidley Austin, to Merisant Company and certain of its affiliates in their chapter 11 proceedings in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. At the time of the bankruptcy, the Debtors were a worldwide leader in the production and marketing of low-calorie tabletop sweeteners, with an approximate 22% dollar share of a global retail market estimated at $1.6 billion as of December 31, 2007. With the assistance of Young Conaway and Sidley, the Debtors successfully confirmed their chapter 11 plan of reorganization and emerged from bankruptcy in 2010.
