The Impact of FTX’s Collapse: Insights on What Comes Next

November 10, 2022

In an unwelcome reminder of the events that unfolded in the wake of the May 2022 crypto market collapse, Bahamian-based crypto exchange FTX is reportedly on the brink of collapse following an unexpected surge in customer withdrawals and a failed deal with competitor Binance. In an effort to stave off the fate of former crypto giants Three Arrows Capital (3AC), Voyager Digital and Celsius Network, each of which entered bankruptcy protection earlier this year, FTX and Binance announced on Tuesday that they had entered into a “non-binding letter of intent” for Binance to purchase all of FTX’s non-U.S. exchange business. However, within 24 hours, Binance announced that it would not proceed with the deal, citing concerns about mishandling of customer funds and U.S. regulatory investigations.

ESG Risks of Antitrust Enforcement and Liability

November 14, 2022

Business enterprises are under pressure the world over to develop and adopt policies that promote social, environmental and governance (“ESG”) goals. Many ESG goals and policies are undoubtably laudable from a societal standpoint. Yet, perhaps surprisingly, legislators and antitrust enforcers in the United States and Europe have raised concerns that conduct associated with industry collaborations (particularly climate-related) could be challenged under antitrust laws.

October 26, 2022

On July 6, 2022, the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit decided In Re: Eileen Fogarty, holding that a mortgagee violated the automatic stay imposed when a tenant filed bankruptcy by proceeding with a foreclosure sale that named the same tenant as a defendant. The automatic stay provisions in the Bankruptcy Code are intended to protect debtors by prohibiting any actions or legal proceedings that may dissipate the debtor’s assets or interfere with the orderly administration of the bankruptcy estate.
