2:15 p.m. - 3:30 p.m: "Bankruptcy Beyong Borders: From Hedge Funds to Herbal Supplements -- Why Chapter 15 Matters to You"

Panelist: Jay A. Carfagnini, Goodmans LLP

This session will focus on:

The principal vehicle through which foreign insolvency proceedings will enter the United States is Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Proceedings commenced under this Chapter will dictate how asset values are maximized, how proceeds of realization are distributed and what role foreign courts will play in determining the rights and interests of U.S. stakeholders. Recent cases in connection with the recognition of reign proceedings involving the SphinX and Bear Stearns hedge funds demonstrate that Chapter 15 will be at the forefront of some of the most complex, intriguing and ground breaking cases.

The panel of leading experts will focus on the implications of the recent cases dealing with failed hedge funds, the MuscleTech Chapter 15 proceedings dealing with mass tort litigation arising from the sale of herbal supplements and the real challenges and opportunities for turnaround professionals in dealing with cross-border insolvency cases
