This webinar is hosted by NAAG and the Association of Topeka Area Bankruptcy Counsel.

June 23, 2021 at 1:00 P.M. – 2:15 P.M. ET

This program will provide an overview of the new small business provisions in Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The Subchapter V language was enacted in 2019 just in time to be available for the onset of the COVID crisis. It was originally limited to businesses with less than $2.5 million in debt, but that was temporarily expanded after COVID to $7.5 million. The provisions are meant to provide a simplified process for these small debtors so that those with debt limits above what can be handled in Chapter 13 can still benefit from a similar approach.

Thus far, the chapter has proven to be highly popular and, as the debt deferral provisions relating to COVID begin to ratchet down, it will likely prove even more important in upcoming months. This program will provide an introduction to practice and procedure in these cases based on materials presented by Judge Eduardo Rodriguez of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court from the Southern District of Texas.
