February 18, 2019, U.S. Bankruptcy Courthouse, Detroit, Michigan
ABI and The Walter Shapero Symposium Committee are pleased to announce the inaugural Walter Shapero Sixth Circuit Moot Court Competition and Symposium. Taking place on Presidents’ Day, this regional contest is a precursor to the 27th Annual Duberstein Moot Court Competition, co-sponsored by the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) and St. John’s University School of Law in New York.
Following the competition, join the students, coaches and judges for a symposium featuring prominent members of the bench and bar in discussion about the same fact pattern the teams argued earlier in the day. Stay for a cocktail reception and awards ceremony to congratulate the participating teams and network with colleagues.
The hospitality industry is highly cyclical and subject to periodic downturns, and the hotel industry in particular has experienced recent threats from online alternatives such as Airbnb. Therefore, most restructuring professionals will encounter restructurings in the hospitality industry over the course of their career. The Webinar's panelists will discuss key issues in this area, including structuring - and the assumption and rejection - of franchise and management agreements, use of cash collateral, asset sales, valuation, regulatory matters (including liquor licenses), and whether hotel bankruptcies qualify as single asset real estate cases. Case studies of interest will be presented.
Thursday, November 15
1 - 2:15 pm ET
