Bankruptcy Team Members to Teach Courses at Duke Law

November 2017
Charlotte Bankruptcy Member and Team Leader Zach Smith, and Bankruptcy Member Alan Pope, have been invited by Duke Law to teach “Structuring and Regulating Financial Transactions” during Duke Law’s spring 2018 semester. The class introduces students to important structured finance techniques and their interplay with various areas of law including bankruptcy, securities, corporations, secured transactions, and tax. Charlotte Bankruptcy Associate Gabe Mathless will be serving as a teaching assistant for the course. 

Smith will also be teaching “Advising a Distressed Enterprise and Its Stakeholders” during Duke Law’s Wintersession. This course will provide students with a practical understanding of the role of outside counsel to a variety of key stakeholders in complex, high-stakes, and fast-paced business reorganizations – including distressed companies and their officers and directors, secured and unsecured creditors, distressed investors, and formal and informal committees.
