Panel IBrazil and the US: The Outlook From Two Prominent Bankruptcy JudgesA moderated discussion between US Bankruptcy Judge Shelley C. Chapman and Brazilian Bankruptcy Judge Daniel Carnio Costa, based on their individual experiences with different cross-border insolvency proceedings including Rede Energia, OAS, Centrais Eletricas do Para, and Lupatech Oil Group. The panel will discuss the structural differences between the two regimes and their impact on a successful debt restructuring, among other relevant topics.  

Panel IIPemex, Petrobras and PDVSA: Behemoths in DistressThe panel will discuss how the three state-owned companies are coping with stubbornly low energy prices. Are there any defaults or government bailouts on the horizon? Have there been any attempts to address structural inefficiencies? Will suppliers survive the cycle? Are there any opportunities for investors or strategic players?
