Argentina has been the subject of a number of court decisions, most recently the December 2011 and February 2012 Orders, in which Judge Griesa has seemingly adopted the broader interpretation of the pari passu clause, which could potentially affect the way that other non-litigating creditors of Argentina are paid and the way that the payment intermediaries conduct their business.  Without re-litigating these decisions, EMTA’s panel will explore some of the issues raised by the plaintiffs, the defendant and various amici in these cases (including differing interpretations of the pari passu clause, as well as appropriate remedies for breaches of sovereign obligations).

James Kerr (Davis Polk) and Whitney Debevoise (Arnold & Porter) will lead the discussion. 

Recent litigation involving Argentina can be found in the Argentina area of EMTA’s website: http://www.emta.org/template.aspx?id=5015.
