This two-part program is for small and mid-size firm and solo
practitioners who may be fielding inquiries from clients about
businesses experiencing financial distress and considering or undergoing
bankruptcy, and who want insight into how to address the prevailing
issues and questions that arise.
Participants can expect to learn:
- The fundamental concepts and law governing business bankruptcies
- The questions and issues that typically arise when a business is
in distress from the standpoint of various key players and constituents
- How experienced practitioners address these issues and questions
Part I of the program will identify the key players/constituents
typically involved and provide an overview of fundamental bankruptcy
concepts and law.
Part II will present and answer “frequently asked questions” from the
perspective of the various key players/constituents and will build on
the concepts covered in Part I. A portion of the FAQs will specifically
address ethical considerations.
