Sovereignty Rules? Implications of Recent US Court Decisions Involving Argentina
Tuesday, December 10, 2013, 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Reception at 6:30 PM; Panel at 7:00 PM
There is no charge for this program.

Much of the aftermath of Argentina's 2001 debt crisis played out in the courtrooms of the Southern District of New York and the Second Circuit. These cases, which often make front-page news in Argentina, have shaped—and re-shaped—U.S. law on the rights of sovereign debtors. The International Law Committee will host a panel discussion by leading lawyers and experts, some of whom were directly involved in these litigations, focusing on the recent U.S. court cases involving the Republic of Argentina. The discussion will include the Supreme Court's look at BG Group v. Argentina, the Second Circuit's recent watershed pari passu decision in NML Capital v. Argentina, and the S.D.N.Y.'s orders surrounding discovery of Argentina's assets and those of its alleged alter egos. This promises to be a lively debate about the legal underpinnings of these decisions and their greater impact on U.S. foreign relations, sovereign debt restructuring, and the role that "sovereignty" plays in the commercial arena.

Panelists: Alex Yanos, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, N.Y.; Carmine Boccuzzi, Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton LLP, N.Y.; Bruce Wolfson, Of Counsel, Bingham McCutchen LLP, N.Y.; Adjunct Professor of International Affairs at Columbia University School of International & Public Affairs
