Who makes decisions for distressed corporations? Increasingly, the answer is a new player in Chapter 11: “independent directors.” These independent directors are usually restructuring experts who join the boards of financially distressed firms and who are often then delegated key bankruptcy decisions. Independent directors have played a major role in many high-profile recent Chapter 11 cases, including Neiman Marcus, Payless Holdings, Nine West and many others. In this program, we will discuss the role that independent directors play in large Chapter 11 cases including, most controversially, settling self-dealing claims against the shareholders who appointed them.
