The Hon. Robert E. Ginsberg Annual Program on Commercial Bankruptcy Law Presents: Current Cases and Trends
TOPICS AND SPEAKERS:
SECTION 546(E): ROUGH WATERS IN THE "SAFE HARBOR"
A point-counterpoint discussion of the Seventh Circuit's recent ruling in FTI Consulting, Inc. v. Merit Management Group, LLP, which deepened the circuit split by holding that Section 546(e)'s safe harbor does not apply to a transaction in which an entity that serves as merely a conduit for a pre-petition transfer is the only entity that fits one of the necessary categories of entities in that section.
Melissa M. Root, Jenner & Block LLP
James B. Sowka, Seyfarth Shaw LLP
Anne Rasho Vanderkamp, CFE, Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP
