Master Negotiator - The Man Who Resolved a Multi-Billion Dollar Dispute [SOLD OUT]
Dan Pollack speaks on "Risen from the Ashes: a conversation on the Historic Debt Negotiations of 2016"Visiting San Francisco from New York City, Mr. Daniel Pollack, AB '60 and LLB '65, one of the country's preeminent negotiators and trial lawyers, will share remarks on his role negotiating the landmark settlement agreement between Argentina and its bondholders to resolve the nation’s debt crisis.
In 2016, Mr. Pollack succeeded in effecting a $4.65 billion settlement of the 15-year litigation between the Republic of Argentina and its lead “holdout” bondholders. Subsequently, Mr. Pollack presided over settlements between Argentina and parties across the globe. In aggregate, all settlements he has presided over to date surpass $9 billion.
Former U.S. Attorney General and federal judge Michael Mukasey, who represented one of the bondholders, praised Mr. Pollack’s work, stating “[he] was capable of being forceful. He was capable of keeping some room for maneuvering when he needed it. I think what he did was a real tour de force. I don't think the case could have been resolved without him.”
Mr. Pollack’s career has involved several other landmark cases including:
• Case against Goldman Sachs arising out of the collapse of Penn Central railroad, chronicled in the NY Times bestseller Money and Power
• Two mutual fund cases before the United States Supreme Court
Mr. Pollack received an A.B., magna cum laude, from Harvard College, received an M.A. in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Oxford University and an LL.B. from Harvard Law School.
He chairs the American Art Committee of the Harvard Art Museums, and is a Bryant Fellow of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
Light appetizers and drinks will be served.
Event partnered with Harvard Law School Association of Northern California.
