The American Bankruptcy Institute has established a Commission to Study the Reform of Chapter 11.

  • This afternoon, June 4, 2013, I will be testifying before the Commission about intellectual property licenses, their treatment in bankruptcy cases, and potential reforms to address several key issues. 
  • Lawrence Gottlieb, my colleague at Cooley LLP in our Corporate Restructuring and Bankruptcy group, will also be testifying before the Commission today, focusing on real property lease issues, how they impact Chapter 11 cases (especially those involving retailers), and suggested reforms.

More information on the Commission and its work, together with access to the testimony of all panelists at the Commission’s hearings, is available at the Commission’s website.

A copy of my testimony is also available by following the link in this sentence.
