This is a program for all levels of professionals in the business and restructuring world which will provide information on the various options available for distressed businesses and their creditors both in bankruptcy and in alternative forums. The program will start with an overview of a most common occurrence in modern bankruptcy – the bankruptcy sale - both inside and outside of the chapter 11 plan context. Alternate non-bankruptcy proceedings such as assignments for the benefit of creditors and UCC sales will also be addressed. Ch 11 Plan fundamentals will be covered including recent cases and trends. There will also be analysis of recent issues involving the interplay between 363 sales and 365 rights and an overview of some recent Supreme Court cases of note. The panel will conclude with a discussion of the ABI’s report on Chapter 11 reform and relevant proposed revisions that, if implemented, will affect current practice and, at present, provide us with some insight on the future of the field.
