    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 08/05/2020

    This on-demand webinar is available for 14 days after purchase and you may watch the on-demand webinar as many times as you like. Given the number of troubled businesses on the rise, any company extending credit to another company faces the likelihood that one or more of its customers will end up in bankruptcy.

This panel will examine, among others, the consequence of the SBRA on creditors under the newly added Subchapter V of the Bankruptcy Code, including the elimination of the creditors committee. The discussion will also cover provisions of the SBRA that provide creditors in all bankruptcy cases with major benefits through changes in preference laws. Finally, the panelists will examine tactics creditors could employ to manage receivables in these cases, and generally protect their rights in Subchapter V bankruptcy proceedings.
