Barry Bressler Spoke At The 88th Annual National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges

On October 9, 2014 by Schnader

Partner Barry Bressler was part of a Commerical Law League of American panel exploring “363 Sales: What You Get-And What You Are Stuck With” on Thursday, October 9, 2014, at the 88th Annual National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges in Chicago.

Section 363 sales are as popular as ever, but the limits and enefits of Section 363(f) protections have recently been the subject of emerging circuit conflicts. Clashes between intellectual property law and bankruptcy principles have sharpened, particularly with respect to the scope of Section 365(n), the effect of pre-existing licenses, and the implications of cross-border contracts. Successor liability issues continue to create headaches for both giant GM and the small company down the street. The panel reported the latest developments and analyze longer range impacts.

The National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges is an association of the Bankruptcy Judges of the United States, which has several purposes: to provide continuing legal education to judges, lawyers and other involved professionals; to promote cooperation among bankruptcy judges; to secure a greater degree of quality and uniformity in the administration of the bankruptcy system, and to improve the practice of law in the bankruptcy courts of the United States.
