Gabriel MacConaill, Sidley Austin LLP

In what surely must be one of the best timed presentations in recent years – the bankruptcy court having confirmed the plan of adjustment for Detroit on November 7, 2014 and with several California municipal bankruptcies capturing headlines – a panel that includes lead counsel for Detroit, counsel for one of the major creditors in Detroit and lead counsel for San Bernardino – will lead a discussion of the key issues that affect chapter 9 bankruptcy cases. The panel will provide a brief overview of chapter 9 and then delve into such topics as eligibility for chapter 9, unique aspects of municipal finance and the liens asserted by these creditors, the treatment of pensions and collective bargaining agreements, and confirmation of a chapter 9 plan of adjustment.
