Catherine Woltering will speak with students about her practice on complex commercial, securities and bankruptcy litigation matters. She will discuss her work related to a case involving a major investment scandal from 2008, in which Bernie Madoff admitted to operating an enormous Ponzi scheme. She will also discuss another recent case she worked on, i.e. the PG&E bankruptcy case. In that case, the California utility company Pacific Gas and Electric filed for bankruptcy because of liabilities it faced for California wildfires caused by its equipment. PG&E shareholders and bondholders are fighting over who will control how the company restructures, which will affect the outcome for those affected by the fires.
