What Every Company Needs to Know About Insolvency, Workouts and Bankruptcy

With economic disruption affecting almost every industry and sector around the globe, a wave of insolvency, bankruptcy and workout issues will almost certainly appear in the coming weeks and months. Companies and individuals—whether as lenders, borrowers, investors, vendors, landlords/tenants, sellers/buyers or stakeholders—will be facing these issues directly and with other companies and individuals and will be required to navigate challenges as well as seek opportunities. Preparing today for how to respond and address these issues is essential.

Drawing upon decades of experience and lessons learned from previous economic downturns, Manatt’s team of bankruptcy, restructuring and distressed assets professionals will provide guidance during this 30-minute webinar on what to expect during this period of economic uncertainty and will discuss cross-industry considerations for addressing the obstacles and opportunities presented by it.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Prepare now to address what happens when a party files for bankruptcy later
  • Identify pre- and post-bankruptcy issues
  • Workouts and debt restructuring—what options are available for companies facing distressed situations
  • Best practices for communicating as a lender or as a borrower
  • Key considerations for investors looking to purchase distressed assets
