Christian & Small Partner Daniel D. Sparks will be participating in a panel discussion – “Yes, but Don’t Forget the Kitchen Sink: Secured Creditors’ Right to Recover Principal + Interest + Default Interest + Original Issue Discount + Late Fees + Prepayment Premiums + Fees + Expenses” – during the 2015 Southeast Bankruptcy Workshop from July 23-26 in Amelia Island, Florida.
This panel will examine and discuss the rights of oversecured lenders to obtain recoveries that go beyond principal and ordinary interest and recent case law dealing. The panel will focus on the right of oversecured lenders to recover late fees, reimbursement of attorneys’ fees, make-whole provisions/pre-payment premiums, original issue discounts and default interest.
The 2015 Southeast Bankruptcy Workshop is presented by the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI), which is the nation’s largest association of bankruptcy professionals, made up of over 12,000 members in multi-disciplinary roles, including attorneys, auctioneers, bankers, judges, lenders, professors, turnaround specialists, accountants and others.
