2017 Current Issues in Business Bankruptcy (Jan 2018)

Examine the standard for appointment and role of equity committees, recent cases in which courts have granted and denied requests for appointment of an equity committee, and whether equity committees enhance shareholder recoveries in Chapter 11 cases.   Session 2: Planning on Staying? - Post-confirmation subject matter jurisdiction may well depend on how you draft your plan. Hear practice tips on how to avoid pitfalls.

Most structured dismissals that violate the bankruptcy code's priority rules, however, are approved on the theory that the priority-skipping payments are gifts. Explore whether practitioners are trying to avoid the code's priorities using gifting theories, notwithstanding Jevic, and are they having success? more »
