Preparing for the Coming Wave of Small Business Bankruptcy Filings

September 10, 2020
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT

The economic distress caused by COVID-19 is causing many small businesses to falter and fail. Are you prepared for the coming wave of bankruptcy filings that will soon be hitting creditors? Small business bankruptcies will not only hurt lenders but also landlords and other trade vendors. Because of the temporary increase in the debt ceiling limit, there is an anticipated surge in these cases between now and March 2021. 

Join us for a program where we will discuss, among other topics:

  • Recent amendments to the Bankruptcy Code that create strong incentives for small businesses to file for bankruptcy
  • Proactive tips and strategies that secured and unsecured creditors can take both before and after a small business bankruptcy filing to protect their interests
