Program Number: 30275 Presenter: Robert N.H. Christmas, Esq., Barry M. Rothchild, Esq.

Procedural gaps between the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and federal bank rehabilitation procedures caused one of the destabilizing features of the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy cases, which was the immediate and damaging termination of Lehman’s financial contracts and those of its subsidiaries through creditors’ use of cross-default provisions.

Likewise, lawyers have some difficulty in understanding the medical world. There is an intersection between these two fields based upon the requirement to work together on behalf of patients, medicine and the legal system. This seminar is intended to explore some of those topics in a novel, interesting and thoughtful manner.
