What the Pros Say (Week of 4/2/17)

  • Jevic/Structured Dismissals. So. Many. Summaries. We understand the awkwardness of claiming to be "curated" while simply listing a dozen different firm's summaries without, at a minimum, opining as to which ones were mailed in and which ones were extensive thoughtful analyses. But, c'mon, do YOU really want to read 12 different summaries of the same case? Well, right, neither do we. Enjoy. P.S. If your firm hasn't produced one yet well...you might as well not even bother at this point.

What the Pros Say (Week of 11/20/16)

Things must have slowed down as a lot of professionals are putting pen to paper...

  • Dead Malls. FTI Consulting provides an analysis.  
  • Deathtraps. Proskauer LLP's Daniel Desatnik discusses "death traps" as a tool in restructurings.
  • Default Interest. Troutman Sanders LLP's Penelope Parmes, Matthew Brooks and Meghan Wells discuss a recent Ninth Circuit decision.
  • Distressed Oil & Gas. Haynes & Boone LLP's Charles Beckham and Opportune LLP's Ryan Bouley discuss distressed debt and oil and gas bankruptcy
  • Election. Oaktree Capital Management's Howard Marks follows up on his pre-election letter with these insights.
  • Jevic. Rebecca Hollander of Cole Schotz LLP discusses the upcoming Supreme Court hearing.
  • LLC Blockers. Nancy Peterman of Greenberg Traurig LLP discusses blocking rights in LLC operating agreements
  • Make-Whole Analysis. Bracewell's Evan Flashen, David Lawton and Mark Dendinger review the Third Circuit's reversing opinion. As do Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP's Adam Harris, Lawrence Gelber, Michael Cook, and Lucy Kweskin here.
  • Retail and Consumer Products. FTI Consulting released its 2016 Holiday Retail Report.
  • Shipping. Bracewell's Evan Flaschen and Mark Dendinger are prolific this week, also addressing the increasingly distressed shipping space. Seward & Kissel LLP's John Ashmead, Michael Timpone, and Robert Gayda also address the distressed shipping space - highly relevant in light of this week's crazy drybulk shipper movements (see Dryships).
