How Safe Are Safe Harbors?

Identification: WEB190314

Developed for experienced bankruptcy practitioners, this webinar examines the Supreme Court's February 2018 decision in FTI Consulting v. Merit Management and the questions it has raised about what kinds of securities payments, trades, and M&A activity are still protected by the Bankruptcy Code's so-called "safe harbors" in the event of a bankruptcy filing. Our distinguished panel will review how the Bankruptcy Code protects certain financial activity from the automatic stay and "claw back" litigation, what the Supreme Court did (and did not) say in Merit Management, and how attorneys might structure trades and M&A deals going forward to maximize safe harbor protection.
