About the Webinar

Customers filing a Chapter 11 case is an inevitable risk that virtually all trade creditors will have to grapple with. This program is designed to simplify that process by providing an end-to-end guide through a Chapter 11 case. In this program, the speakers will highlight each of the key issues and action items that a trade creditor will typically need to be aware of and address during the Chapter 11 process, from the first day of the case through the post-plan confirmation stage of the case. The audience will be encouraged to participate with their questions, as the intent of the program is to thoroughly dive into the key issues and circumstances experienced by trade creditors – i.e., you!
