05/19/2021 8:30 AM PT - 10:00:00 AM PT

Following our first introductory session on basic considerations when a customer files bankruptcy and our second session on dealing with a financially distressed customer pre-bankruptcy, this third session in our four-part series will take a deeper dive into best practices for dealing with a financially distressed customer in bankruptcy. In this session, you will learn practical strategies to walk the tightrope between continuing to do business with a customer in bankruptcy while taking steps to protect your company. You will learn the impact of debtor-in-possession financing on a vendor’s ability to get paid and different types of credit enhancements that can be effective to enable vendors to continue the business relationship while hedging against unnecessary risk. You will also learn in greater depth about different types of priority claims and how to elevate your company’s status as a creditor in its customer’s bankruptcy as a means to maximize recovery.
