Sutherland Counsel Robin J. Powers is speaking on a Credit Derivatives and Bankruptcy Law Panel, May 12, 2008, at the City Bar Center for CLE in New York City. The panel will present a practical guide to credit default swap (CDS) transactions and markets and their possible impact on fundamental debtor-creditor relationships. It will examine the structure and trading of so-called "single-name" CDS, which reference specific corporations or other obligors, as well as index products and CDS based on asset-backed securities. The panel will also explain the relevant legal and regulatory framework within which CDS trading occurs, including securities and commodities laws, and explore relevant aspects of bankruptcy and restructuring rules and processes.
This program is designed to provide CDS practitioners greater familiarity with the effect the bankruptcy and reorganization process has on their markets and to provide bankruptcy and insolvency lawyers with an introduction to how these products are having a growing influence on the bankruptcy and reorganization process.
