May 29, 2015, 05:05 ET from Burleson LLP

HOUSTON, May 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Burleson LLP, a full-service corporate law firm with a focus on the oil and gas sector, will host the final installment of its four-part complimentary webinar series titled, "Drilling Down on Strategic Alternatives in the Current Energy Crisis."  The last event, "Part IV: Chapter 11 in Practice: A Case Study," will be held on June 3 from noon to 1 p.m. CDT

The webinar will address a hypothetical Chapter 11 case from the perspective of multiple parties, including the debtor, senior secured creditor, junior secured creditor, unsecured creditors' committee, and management. 

Moderator Trent Rosenthal, a bankruptcy partner at Burleson, will lead a panel of energy restructuring attorneys and capital and financial advisors. The group will demonstrate the dynamic processes involved in Chapter 11 cases through role playing and interactive discussions.   Attendees will receive an overview of facts relevant to the hypothetical case study to review prior to the webinar.  

"Chapter 11 cases can be a contentious experience. The last thing companies need in today's difficult price environment is added uncertainty about how these matters are handled," explained Rosenthal, who is Board Certified in Business Bankruptcy Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. "Our goal is to take a close look at the details behind the processes involved in these proceedings to give all potential parties a better understanding of the issues and to deliver practical insights for managing a Chapter 11 case."

Rosenthal oversees Burleson's strategic alliances with other leading firms to deliver broad-based, customized bankruptcy and restructuring services to companies in a diverse range of industries. In addition to him, the event will feature: 

  • Richard Bernardy, managing partner of M1 Energy Capital Management. He has over 25 years of banking and finance, management, and entrepreneurial experience, and regularly advises upstream, midstream, and downstream energy companies.
  • Michael Rosenthal, co-chair of the Restructuring and Reorganization Practice Group at Gibson Dunn. He represents debtors and creditors in complex, high-profile national and cross-border restructuring and Chapter 11 cases. He also counsels the boards of large public and privately held companies in insolvency matters. 
  • James C. Row, the founder of OFSCap, LLC and chief executive officer for Producers Energy, LLC, an oil and gas operator in Louisiana and Texas. His background includes various areas of energy finance, including producer finance, project finance, drilling programs, securities, and risk management.
