Overview (Program Summary)
The impact on businesses of the COVID-19 pandemic has only begun to be felt. Despite the large increase in bankruptcy cases already seen since the beginning of the pandemic, an even more dramatic increase should be expected in 2021 and beyond as a result of the challenging financial situation that the pandemic has caused. This will create problems for businesses in all industries and for their partners, customers and vendors for years to come. This virtual roundtable program, moderated by Schnader’s Richard Barkasy and Kenneth Puhala, will consider the bankruptcy and restructuring trends and issues businesses should expect to see, the options to prepare for and manage these challenges, and how in-house counsel can best respond.
