October 20, 2010

Jonathan Cooper, principal in the firm's Commercial Finance Group and Dimitri Karcazes, principal in the firm's Bankruptcy and Creditors' Rights Group, gave a presentation entitled, "Beyond TOUSA," at the ABA Commercial Finance Committee Meeting on October 20, 2010.

The presentation dealt with issues and conclusions from the TOUSA case and how lenders should structure deals to avoid TOUSA-like treatment in the future.  Other topics included solvency analysis, solvency opinions, fraudulent conveyance analysis and defenses, and savings clauses.

Mr. Cooper frequently gives presentations regarding international finance and has written several articles on the subject.  He has worked with UNCITRAL (the trade division of the United Nations) in connection with UNCITRAL'S work to develop a Secured Transaction Guide, which provides a comprehensive blueprint for countries wishing to modernize their secured transactions regimes.  As part of this project, he has helped draft significant portions of the Guide, made presentations at the UN and attended several UN working group meetings.

Mr. Karcazes has considerable experience with high-yield, distressed debt, intercreditor and subordinated debt matters.  He has handled transactions and cases throughout the United States and in Canada, Mexico and the European Union. He is a frequent speaker on bankruptcy and commercial finance issues. His presentations have included cross-border insolvencies, debtor-in-possession financing, asbestos bankruptcies, intercreditor agreements, bankruptcy sales, and how pension liabilities and intellectual property issues are impacted by bankruptcy.
