The Honorable Sidney B. Brooks (ret.), Chad Caby, Esq. (Lewis Roca Rothberger Christie LLP), and Robert Lantz, Esq. (Coan Payton and Payne LLC) bankruptcy and commercial law experts in the US participated in a 90-minute program on cross-border insolvency law and transnational commercial law intrinsic in an international bankruptcy case with legal scholars and practitioners from the University of Moscow, Russia. This comparative panel discussed bankruptcy as well as jurisdiction, civil procedure, access to the American court system, cooperation and communication between and among judges in different countries working on the same case, and managing local law and foreign law when they clash in a cross-border environment.

This program series was initiated in 2015 between the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and Russia’s Moscow State University. It gathers experts, academics, and students from both countries to present and discuss on international and comparative legal topics via a Skype’d conference call. These programs are free and open to students and the interested public.

Dr. Pomar’s personal and professional experience was the foundation for this very important civil, economic, and legal discussion.
