On June 2, 2014 at the New York City Bar Headquarters, Thomas Slome will Co-Chair the Plan Mediation in Bankruptcy program at the New York City Bar Association.In recent years, Plan mediation has become an increasingly important tool to help resolve complex chapter 11 cases. The benefits of mediating value allocation disputes, particularly in cases involving numerous parties and complicated issues, are clear – expensive, protracted litigation can be avoided and consensual Plans of Reorganization can be fashioned. But Plan mediation can also bring with it drawbacks, costs and complexities. When is the right time to go to mediation? What issues are best mediated and what parties should be involved? How and when should non- restricted holders be brought into the mediation? These are just a few of the topics that the panel of experienced Judges, mediators and practitioners will explore.
