Best Practices for Doing Business with a Financially Troubled Customer Pre-Bankruptcy
04/21/2021 8:30 AM PT - 10:00:00 AM PT

Following our first introductory session on basic considerations when a customer files bankruptcy, this second session in our four-part series will take a deeper dive into best practices for dealing with a financially distressed customer before bankruptcy. Your customer’s financial difficulty does not automatically mean that you need to cease doing business together. At the same time, it also does not mean that you should take on unnecessary risk. In this session, you will learn about practical ways to walk the tightrope between continuing to do business with a financially-troubled customer while taking steps to protect your company. These steps start with having a good set of forms and terms and conditions. A discussion of useful credit enhancements will follow. This session will also cover a number of useful rights and remedies available to sellers of goods dealing with financially-troubled customers that can help your company maximize its recovery and minimize its risk.
