Business Law Breakfast: The Future of Mass Torts in Bankruptcy After Purdue Pharma

UCLA Law Professor Daniel Bussel and Thomas E. Patterson will discuss the issue before the Supreme Court in Harrington v. Purdue Pharma L.P.: Whether the Bankruptcy Code authorizes a court to approve, as part of a plan of reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, a release that extinguishes claims held by nondebtors against nondebtor third parties, without the claimants’ consent. Professor Bussel and Mr. Patterson are partners in KTBS Law LLP,  a premier nationwide boutique law firm focusing on business and municipal bankruptcy and restructuring, corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions.
