Hogan Lovells’ U.S. Business Restructuring and Insolvency Practice head Chris Donoho and partner Ron Silverman, along with Jefferies’ Restructuring and Recapitalization Group co-head Richard Morgner, recently joined Debtwire legal analyst Richard Goldman to discuss current issues concerning cross-border restructurings.

During the discussion, the panel addressed the factors that prompt foreign-based companies to avail themselves of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in lieu of local insolvency proceedings, the hurdles that such companies must overcome to secure a U.S. court’s administration of their Chapter 11 cases and pitfalls that foreign-based companies may encounter in the U.S.

The panel also reflected on some recent cross-border cases, including Abengoa, Hanjin Shipping, and Baha Mar.
