Live Webcast Presentation:

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is not just for large corporations or high net worth individuals anymore.  The new sub-Chapter V of chapter 11 offers a quicker and more cost-effective bankruptcy option to debtors who might otherwise resort to liquidation under chapter 7 or dissolution under state law.  Learn who qualifies to use subchapter V, the basic timeline of a subchapter V case, the new role of subchapter V Trustees, and the new confirmation standard.  We will also discuss new bankruptcy legislation intended to assist small businesses affected by the pandemic. The panelists have worked on several local subchapter V cases as trustees, debtor's counsel, and/or creditor's counsel, and they offer a variety of perspectives about the pros and cons of proceeding under the new scheme.
