Partner L.P. Harrison 3rd Attends UNCITRAL Working Group Spring Meeting at the United Nations

Restructuring and Insolvency co-chair L.P. Harrison 3rd was selected to serve as a representative at the UNCITRAL Working Group V (Insolvency Law) Spring Meeting. The session was held from May 10-19, 2017 at the United Nations headquarters. Mr. Harrison served in his capacity as Vice Chair of the Inter-Pacific Bar Association (IPBA), an international association of business and commercial lawyers who reside in, or are otherwise strongly engaged in, the Asia-Pacific Region. The UNCITRAL Working Group V was instrumental in drafting the model law that was the precursor to Chapter 15 of the United States Bankruptcy Code, which governs cross-border insolvencies in the U.S. The topic covered at this session included the facilitation of cross-border insolvency of multinational enterprise groups and enforcement of foreign judgements, among other important cross-border topics. Over 60 countries and numerous international organizations participated in the event.
