Rafael Zahralddin-Aravena, Chosen Moderator at the NCBJ in Chicago

CHICAGO, IL- Elliott Greenleaf's, Rafael Zahralddin-Aravena, was a speaker and moderator on a panel at the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges in Chicago, Illinois which was held on October 8-11, 2014.  The panel was titled "Is There Room in the Chapter 11 Ark for Trustees, Examiners, Receivers, and CROs?”.

This panel discussed the underlying common law surrounding receiverships (including federal receivers), case law and statutory authority relating to the appointment of trustees and examiners, and the use of crisis restructuring officers in Chapter 11. The panel focused on recent trends including cases resulting from the use of foreign subsidiaries to access the U.S. market through reverse mergers, cross border fiduciary duties, fraud cases, and cases related to gross mismanagement. Special attention was paid to the practical limitations of using receivers, CROs, trustees and examiners.
