Professor Parikh at the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges
On October 8, 2014, Professor Parikh was a panelist at the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges. Professor Parikh debated the merits of bankruptcy venue reform with bankruptcy luminaries Professor Douglas Baird (The University of Chicago Law School), Jaime Sprayregen (Kirkland & Ellis), and the Hon. Arthur Gonzalez (retired bankruptcy judge for the S.D.N.Y.), among others. The annual conference is one of the preeminent events for bankruptcy judges, practitioners, and academics.
Professor Parikh’s research and writing focus on promoting uniformity in the decision-making processes behind key forms of relief in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings in order to eliminate debtor forum shopping – a significant problem due to the relative freedom the Bankruptcy Code affords corporate debtors in selecting venue.
