Please join the Harvard Association for Law and Business (HALB) and the Harvard Bankruptcy Roundtable for our flagship bankruptcy and restructuring panel featuring leaders from across the world of bankruptcy law and finance. Panelists will discuss a current controversy in bankruptcy, venue and forum shopping, from the perspectives of debtor and creditor side lawyers, investment bankers, and judges. In bankruptcy, where a debtor files for bankruptcy can make the difference between satisfactory and unsatisfactory outcomes – between who wins and who loses – and our panelists are experts in this high stakes process with different perspectives on the state of the law. Additionally, panelists will discuss venue reform proposals in Congress.
Confirmed in-person panelists include: Chief Judge Martin Glenn, U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York; Meredith Lahaie, Partner at Akin Gump; Andy Dietderich, Partner and co-head of the Global Finance & Restructuring Group at Sullivan & Cromwell; and William “Tuck” Hardie, Managing Director at Houlihan Lokey. The panel will be moderated by Mark Roe, the David Berg Professor of Law at Harvard Law School.
