Bill Kannel will be speaking at the American College of Bankruptcy & Boston College Law School Bankruptcy Symposium on a panel focused on divisive mergers on May 17. 

A number of issues have dominated the bankruptcy world over the last few years, but none more so than the use of bankruptcy to shield non-debtors from liability particularly in the mass tort context. A succession of panels will address non-consensual third party releases (e.g. opioid cases and other tort cases), divisive merger statutes (a/k/a the “Texas Two-Step”), liability of private equity sponsors, and how forum selection impacts all of the above.
