Charlotte Bankruptcy & Financial Restructuring Member Zach Smith has been appointed to the advisory board for the American Bankruptcy Institute’s 2016 Caribbean Insolvency Symposium.

Lamoutte of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Puerto Rico, the panel discussion: Comprehending the Crisis: A Survey of Puerto Rico’s History and Fiscal Situation, and Paths Forward. According to ABI, the panel will discuss “Puerto Rico’s present economic condition/situation, the sequence of events that have led to PR’s present economic crisis, what should/can be done to restructure PR’s debt, whether chapter 9 is an appropriate tool to restructure PR’s debt or a solution to its economic condition, and the legal issues that PR is likely to confront in light of its economic crisis.”
