The speakers for this webinar will discuss creative plan provisions, confirmation issues, and other tactics used to ‘stack the deck’. In addition, the panel will discuss gerrymandering, vote incentivization schemes, drop dead provisions and golden shares, and whether or not these schemes constitute creative lawyer or a contortion of the Code.

Man-made disasters and mass tort product liability claims can frequently be a prequel to a bankruptcy filing. When the victims, claimants and tort-feasors are located across borders, the various stakeholders face especially profound challenges, navigating the laws of different jurisdictions, while attempting to provide fair redress and preserve going-concern value. A panel of insolvency professionals involved in two recent major cases (the Takata airbag class action and the Montreal Maine Atlantic Railway crash) will provide insights from various perspectives.
