What Non-Bankruptcy Attorneys Need to Know to Protect Landlord and Business Clients

“Many attorneys represent individuals and small to larger businesses as vendors, or as owners of commercial space, or both. Until 2020, many may not have recently had to deal with the fallout that occurs when a client’s tenants or customers file for bankruptcy. Whether you practice bankruptcy law only occasionally, or not at all; whether you are a solo or small firm lawyer; a practitioner at a midsize or larger firm that does not have a bankruptcy department; an in-house or outside general counsel; or whether you have one commercial client, or fifty, this seminar is for you!

This program is intended to give a solid foundation in spotting important issues that often crop up very quickly, and to help you become familiar with the bankruptcy process. You will gain the knowledge to stay apprised of each step of the proceedings so that you can successfully navigate through your client’s case and thoroughly understand the impact of the proceedings on your client’s legal position and bottom line.

The seminar comes with a valuable materials book that is packed with practical information to help you navigate bankruptcy proceedings.”
