Insolvency Symposium

October 5, 2016
1:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Chapter 128 receiverships are as popular as ever in Wisconsin. Yet this alternative to bankruptcy creates plenty of challenging issues for lenders, buyers and receivers alike. And if you thought Chapter 11 was disfavored, consider the healthcare industry. Changes to Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement rates, fewer inpatient admissions and high costs, particularly administrative costs related to the Affordable Care Act, have all contributed to a higher pace of healthcare bankruptcies in Wisconsin and elsewhere. These pressures can create both opportunities and obstacles.

Join attorneys from Husch Blackwell''s insolvency and healthcare practices and three of the state''s leading Chapter 128 professionals for a discussion of the legal trends and issues impacting Chapter 128 receiverships and healthcare bankruptcies. The session will conclude with a not-to-be-missed insider''s perspective on the recently concluded Archdiocese of Milwaukee Chapter 11 case.
