American Bankruptcy Institute's 31st Annual Spring Meeting

Stroock partner Kristopher Hansen will be a featured speaker at the American Bankruptcy Institute's 31st Annual Spring Meeting April 18-21, 2013 in National Harbor, MD.

The meeting will feature four concurrent workshops and will cover various "tracks," including programs for attorneys in large and small commercial cases, a track for restructuring professionals and a track dealing solely with consumer issues.

Mr. Hansen's panel, "Mock Hearing - DIP Financing and 363 Sales," will be held on Friday, April 19, 2013 between 9:30-11:00 a.m.

The panelists will conduct a mock argument before a three-judge panel on key issues that arise in the approval of DIP financing and approval of a 363 sale. DIP hearing issues will include roll-ups, liens on avoidance actions, expedited sale procedures, 506 waiver, no committee carve-out, no plan without lender's consent, and enforcement of subordination agreements. Sale issues will include assumption or rejection of IP licenses, as well as the rights of junior lienholders to block sales where not paid in full.
