In The Deal Q&A “A Decade After Lehman, Judge Recalls Pure Panic on Lawyers' Faces,” James Peck discusses the historic Lehman Brothers bankruptcy hearing which he presided over as a judge in the Southern District of New York.

“Even to this day, the most significant event in the case was the emergency 363 sale hearing that took place at the end of the first week on Sept. 19. That was probably the most dramatic and tense bankruptcy court hearing in history,” he said.
