Womble Bond Dickinson Partner Morgan Patterson recently took part in a panel discussion titled “Update on Chapter 15 and Other Hot Topics in Cross-Border Insolvency Cases.” The panel discussion was part of the Caribbean Insolvency Symposium, held Feb. 7-9 in Key Largo, Fla.
The panelists discussed notable chapter 15 and cross-border insolvency cases decided in the past year, including those involving the scope of discovery available to foreign representatives, § 109 eligibility, and the use of chapter 15 to bind creditors to confirmed plans. The panelists also discussed logistical and practical solutions in running chapter 15 cases.
Joining Patterson in the discussion were U.S. Bankruptcy Court (S.D. Fla.) Judge Erik Kimball and Ogier Partner Gemma Lardner. Sequor Law Shareholder Leyza Blanco moderated the discussion.
