EMTA is pleased to present a Special Seminar on “Argentina and Its Pari Passu Clause”.
This Seminar will be held on Wednesday, April 18, 2012, at 360 Madison Avenue (on 45th St. between Madison and 5th Aves.), 17th Floor in New York City.
Registration is at 11:15 a.m.
Discussion will begin at 11:30 a.m. (and end at 1:30 p.m.)
Lunch will be served.
Argentina has been the subject of a number of court decisions, most recently the December 2011 and February 2012 Orders, in which Judge Griesa has seemingly adopted the broader interpretation of the pari passu clause, which could potentially affect the way that other non-litigating creditors of Argentina are paid and the way that the payment intermediaries conduct their business. Without re-litigating these decisions, EMTA’s panel will explore some of the issues raised by the plaintiffs, the defendant and various amici in these cases (including differing interpretations of the pari passu clause, as well as appropriate remedies for breaches of sovereign obligations).
James Kerr (Davis Polk) and Whitney Debevoise (Arnold & Porter) will lead the discussion.
Recent litigation involving Argentina can be found in the Argentina area of EMTA’s website: http://www.emta.org/template.aspx?id=5015.
