Your client is getting ready to sign an agreement with another party. Maybe it is a loan document. Maybe it is an offer to purchase. Somewhere near the end of the agreement, you see that there is bold, capitalized language indicating that by signing this agreement, your client will waive its right to a trial by jury.

Section 365(f) of the Bankruptcy Code permits a debtor to assume and assign an executory contract so long as adequate assurance of future performance is provided to the nondebtor party. However, the phrase “adequate assurance of future performance” is not defined in the Bankruptcy Code, and thus courts must interpret its meaning.
