Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Special Issues - A Focus on Health Care

Chapter 11 cases involving healthcare providers involves issues that simply do not exist on chapter 11s of other entities. First, public health and safety issues are at issue in a way that generally is not the case with other debtors. There is, consequently, a large state and federal non-bankruptcy law regulatory overlay in such cases to make sure that the care of patients remains paramount. Also helping to effect this is that courts recognize the “duty of obedience” owed by the leadership of a healthcare provider. As a practical matter, the stakeholders with whom a healthcare provider debtor must consider, and deal with, are often be much broader than in other chapter 11 cases. These are some of the issues this webinar addresses.

This webinar is delivered in Plain English, understandable to you even if you do not have a background in bankruptcy law. It brings you into an engaging, even sometimes humorous, conversation designed to entertain as it teaches. And, it is specifically designed to be viewed as a stand-alone webinar, meaning that you do not have to view the other webinars in the series to get a lot out of it.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Special Issues - A Focus on Single Asset Real Estate

Motion to dismiss or convert early in the case, and motions to lift the automatic stay to permit a single lender to foreclose on all of the debtor’s assets, are common. More generally, single asset real estate cases are far more likely to be dominated by litigation early as compared to other chapter 11 cases. Plan confirmation issues tend to focus on claim classification issues. This webinar addresses these issues.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Special Issues - A Focus on Retail

No two chapter 11 cases are alike and no two chapter 11 cases involving a retail business are alike. There are, nonetheless, certain issues that tend to arise in most retail cases. Among them: the retention of a liquidation firm; lease assumption and rejection; the claim priority of rent during a month that straddles the Petition Date or a rejection date; and consumer deposit issues. This webinar addresses such issues.
