9:15 am:  The ABCP Case – Impact of the Court’s Decision on Insolvency Practice

Speaker:  Fred Myers, Partner, Goodmans LLP

The Ontario Court of Appeal’s decision in Re: Metcalfe & Mansfield Alternative Investments II Corp. not only makes clear that third party releases can be included in a plan but sets out a coherent explanation of the scope and purpose of the CCAA. The recent decision by the Supreme Court of Canada to not hear a challenge to the Re: Metcalfe decision sets the course for managing parties in cases of future financial meltdowns.  Experienced counsel will discuss the legal underpinnings of the ABCP restructuring plan, the court decisions and how they will benefit complex restructurings in Canada. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
