Wickouski to Facilitate ABI Debate on Chapter 11

September 12, 2016

Authored by: Larry Tinnon

On Friday, October 7, 2016, Partner Stephanie Wickouski from Bryan Cave’s Washington, D.C. office will facilitate an ABI program at Georgetown University Law Center entitled “Bankruptcy 2016: Views from the Bench.”  This panel of bankruptcy judges will explore the trend of private-equity firms and hedge funds favoring out-of-court workouts (with or without a pre-packaged or pre-arranged bankruptcy case) rather than traditional chapter 11 cases for achieving their restructuring goals.  The panel will also debate whether the Chapter 11 Reform Commission’s recommendations adequately address such issues.  Cases to be discussed include Tribune Co. fraudulent conveyance litigation, Sun Capital, ICL Holding and Sabine Oil & Gas Corp.
