He will present, in conjunction with Lisa Sumner, a partner at Nexsen Pruet in Raleigh, North Carolina, the program “Go Your Own Way” versus “I Fought the Law (and the Law Won)”: Intercreditor Agreements Battle the Bankruptcy Code". The program addresses how Bankruptcy Courts treat creditor agreements whose provisions may be contrary to principles of the Bankruptcy Code. Can creditors successfully have it their own way in bankruptcy using prepetition contract provisions or does the Bankruptcy Code rule the day?
