April 29, 2018 – Cross-Border Collisions: Mass Disaster & Mass Tort Claims
Baker & McKenzie principal, Debra A. Dandeneau, will be participating on a panel, Cross-Border Collisions: Mass Disaster & Mass Tort Claims, as part of the INSOL New York, Annual Regional Conference taking place from April 29 through May 1, 2018.
Man-made disasters and mass tort product liability claims can frequently be a prequel to a bankruptcy filing. When the victims, claimants and tort-feasors are located across borders, the various stakeholders face especially profound challenges, navigating the laws of different jurisdictions, while attempting to provide fair redress and preserve going-concern value. A panel of insolvency professionals involved in two recent major cases (the Takata airbag class action and the Montreal Maine Atlantic Railway crash) will provide insights from various perspectives.
