Description

In our world of ever growing corporate structures and technology the practice of insolvency is changing and adapting. This seminar will examine new and emerging legal issues that today?s companies face when they reorganize under the Companies? Creditors Arrangement Act in Canada by comparing it to how the United States treats similar issues under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The various areas of law that will be discussed include how mass tort claims can be included in the reorganization process (ie. the Red Cross tainted blood scandal), cross-border insolvencies of multinational corporations, the treatment of environmental claims, the treatment of intellectual property as ?property?, employment law and the treatment of employee benefits and pensions in a reorganization as well as discussing public policy issues surrounding the reorganization of companies.
