Bankruptcy group chair Lynn P. Harrison III was invited to participate in an exclusive panel discussion “Failure Without Borders: Adjudicating Global Insolvencies,” at this year’s Second Circuit Judicial Conference. Mr. Harrison served on this panel alongside prominent bankruptcy judges: the Honorable Allan Gropper, retired Judge of the U.S. Court for the Southern District of New York; the Honorable Robert Drain, of the U.S. Court for the Southern District of New York, who moderated the panel; and the Honorable Shelley Chapman of the U.S. Court for the Southern District of New York. The panel was followed by an address from the Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsberg who delivered the report on the 2018—2019 term of the United States Supreme Court.

The session addressed past and recent developments in the area of cross-border restructuring and insolvency cases, with a specific focus on the international aspects of cases filed under the United States Bankruptcy Code. The conference was held on June 5−7, 2019 and attended by members of the judiciary of the Second Circuit, and invited representatives of Department of Justice among other governmental agencies and members of academia from throughout the world.
