Wilbur Ross, dubbed the “King of Bankruptcy” by Fortune magazine, kicked off the International Insolvency Institute’s ninth annual conference with a keynote speech on the global credit crisis. The highly regarded two-day conference drew more than 100 bankruptcy experts to Columbia Law School this past June.
Panels at the conference covered a wide range of topics, including the downfall of the automotive industry, conflict of interest in insolvency situations, investing in
China, and the realities of restructuring multinational corporate enterprises. Harvey Miller ’59, who oversaw the liquidation of Lehman Brothers, chaired a panel addressing the collapse of the vaunted investment house.
