Financial Contract Safe Harbors Under the US Bankruptcy Code - After the Lehman Bankruptcy

The Lehman Brothers bankruptcy brought into focus the risks faced when one of the counterparties to derivative and other financial contracts fails. In the United States, various safe harbors for financial contracts exist to mitigate bankruptcy risks. However, such protections are not without limits. Please join us as Restructuring, Bankruptcy & Insolvency partners Howard Beltzer and Joel Moss provide a brief overview of the financial contract safe harbors under the Bankruptcy Code and an update of the recent major decisions by courts that have addressed, and helped define, the scope of such protections. They will also discuss decisions in the US Lehman Chapter 11 cases addressing related capital markets issues.
