Multiple Debtors: Best Practices for Corporate Governance in Multi-Debtor Cases

This panel will discuss how to make sure management (and the board) plays the role of neutral stakeholder throughout a plan and/ or § 363 process. Can the same board and management team truly represent the interests of stakeholders of BOTH a corporate parent and its subsidiaries? What if there are dozens of affiliates whose creditors have disparate interests? Why is the issue of corporate separateness (and related conflicts) overlooked in some multiple-debtor cases, but addressed in others? What are the pros and cons of various tools for addressing potential conflicts? Who should investigate when issues are raised about the validity of intercompany debt, the reasonableness of cost allocations, the ownership of intellectual property and the potential for fraudulent conveyance claims among debtors? Examples discussed may include Nortel, Caesars, EFH, Lehman, Tribune and others.

Current Issues in the Energy Sector

How are cash-collateral orders and adequate-protection packages being fashioned in E&P bankruptcies, and what intercreditor issues can arise as a result? This panel will discuss questions relating to lender collateral that may surface in E&P cases, such as (1) the absence of blanket liens, liens on reserves and cash as security; (2) the impact of state law defining property rights in such assets as royalty streams and leasehold interests; and (3) contract interpretation issues involving prepayment agreements and other arrangements. The panel will also discuss E&P valuation issues and their relationship to the commodity pricing cycle, as well as environmental obligations and pension/OPEB issues (e.g., Peabody).

Ethics Panel: Current Issues in the Retention and Compensation of Bankruptcy Professionals

How will the Supreme Court’s decision in Baker Botts v. ASARCO affect professional fees? Will there be an increase in fee litigation in future chapter 11 cases? This panel will also explore the Tribune standard for payment of unsecured creditors’ post-petition professionals’ fees, fees awarded as part of global settlements (Lehman), and the recent use of fee examiners. The session could also include a discussion on when disclosure of “representations of parties in unrelated matters” is sufficient, whether conflicts be cured by the appointment of conflicts counsel, a recent Ninth Circuit decision on the potential implications of exceeding fee caps, when it is necessary to obtain a conflict waiver, current vs. recent vs. former clients, and directly adverse vs. positionally adverse.

ABI will handle such instances on a case-by-case basis and will work with the individual on alternative solutions. For persons who cannot meet the full registration rate, ABI will offer a reduced rate based on what the individual can reasonably afford to cover the cost of meals and materials. For persons unable to pay a reduced rate, we may allow the individual to work at our registration area for a few hours during attendee check-in, or assist in conference set-up. ABI also has reduced rates for government employees, professors, law clerks and students. For information on tuition assistance, e-mail jguirguis@abiworld.org.
