At the 2017 IBA Annual Conference, Davis Polk partner Timothy Graulich will co-chair the “Avoiding That Sinking Feeling: Navigating Shipping Insolvencies” session. Panelists will discuss immediate problems arising for stakeholders in shipping insolvencies:
- How are debtors and creditors best advised?
- How can charters be terminated and cargo returned or compensated for and to what extend will insurance respond?
- How is business affected when the original financiers sell their non-performing loans to investors?
- Cross-border insolvency issues and the application of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Model Law to achieve ‘modified unversalism’
The program will be held October 8-13, 2017, in Sydney.
