Bringing the Holdouts to the Table

2019 Complex Financial Restructuring Program

Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas

Blank Rome Partner Michael B. Schaedle will serve as a faculty member at the American Bankruptcy Institute (“ABI”) 2019 Complex Financial Restructuring Program, being held on Wednesday, February 27, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas.

Mike’s session, “Bringing the Holdouts to the Table,” will take place from 2:50 to 3:50 p.m. and the panel will discuss the fact that, while chapter 11 is an effective tool to bind lenders to a transaction, it is not the only option available to advisors and will offer strategies to bring holdouts to the table to negotiate a consensual deal so that a chapter 11 filing can be avoided. Joining Mike on the panel will be:

  • Kathryn A. Coleman, Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP; New York
  • David Herman, Gordian Group, LLC; New York
  • Elizabeth R. McColm, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP; New York
  • Nancy A. Peterman, Greenberg Traurig, LLP; Chicago
  • Christine Pirro, Kirkland & Ellis LLP
  • Nicholas Rubin, Force10 Partners

The Complex Financial Restructuring Program offers a unique approach to understanding the role of investment bankers and financial advisors in insolvency and restructuring. A case study will be presented as faculty members play the role of major constituents and dramatize the various perspectives of parties-in-interest. Faculty will provide insight, practical advice and proposed solutions on how to make a turnaround successful. If you advise clients on restructuring issues, you can’t afford to miss this one-of-a-kind program.

Attendees are eligible to receive CLE credit for participating in this program, which will conclude with a networking reception.
