Chapter 9: Bondholder Issues in Municipal Bankruptcies and Workouts

February 24, 2010 – February 26, 2010
D. Ross Martin
The market has started to focus on the ability of cities, towns, and even states to service their bond debt in the current economic environment. Ropes & Gray partners Keith Wofford and Ross Martin, both of the Bankruptcy and Restructuring group, focus on representing bondholders in distressed situations. They will discuss several of the core legal issues in Chapter 9 bankruptcies, including how these issues affect workout negotiations between bondholders and municipalities and how the municipal workout and bankruptcy differ from the better-understood Chapter 11 process for distressed companies.
