Washington D.C. partner Laura Phillips participated on a panel titled, “The Life Cycle of an FCC-Regulated Entity in Bankruptcy,” at the FCC/Bankruptcy Mini Conference on Thursday, April 24, in Washington, D.C. The program was co-sponsored by the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) and the FCBA. 

The panel reviewed the life cycle of a chapter 11 case involving an FCC-regulated entity, including whether FCC approval is required for an entity to file for and operate in chapter 11, developments during the chapter 11 case that may require the debtor to seek further approval from the FCC, the FCC approvals that may be required for the debtor to emerge from bankruptcy, and how each of these FCC issues intersects with bankruptcy law.

Laura was joined on the panel by Norman Pernick of Cole, Schotz, Forman & Leonard, David Brown of the   FCC, Dennis Dunne of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, Jack Goodman of Jack Goodman Law and Brian Whitman of Alvarez & Marsal.
