At The Podium
The Intersection of Environmental Law and Bankruptcy
Matthew A. Paque
Matt Paque, an environmental lawyer with McAfee & Taft and former assistant general counsel with Tronox, a publicly traded global mining and chemical manufacturing corporation, speaks on “The Intersection of Environmental Law and Bankruptcy” at the February 2015 meeting of the Oklahoma Bar Association Environmental Law Section. His presentation focuses on the Tronox bankruptcy, a seminal case with a record-breaking settlement in bankruptcy that enables widespread environmental remediation to be implemented at numerous industrial sites. He also discusses important considerations for restructuring companies with legacy liabilities and what third parties who have environmental claims in a bankruptcy should consider when filing a claim.
