This article provides an overview of Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code, a key provision within the Code that allows a debtor to assume, assume and assign, or reject certain executory contracts and unexpired leases. Section 365(n) is a carve-out to the debtor’s broad 365 power that allows a non-debtor counterparty the right to either accept the rejection of a contract/license or continue performing under the contract.
