Financially distressed foreign companies are taking advantage of a less well known Chapter of the Bankruptcy Code, Chapter 15, as part of their restructuring efforts.

This webinar is designed to demystify Bankruptcy Code Chapter 15's complexities, discussing how Chapter 15 works, what Chapter 15 filings are being used to accomplish, and practical advice for trade creditors when a foreign debtor files a Chapter 15 case.

There will also be a discussion of multinational debtors that file foreign insolvency proceedings abroad, how these proceedings interact with related Chapter 11 and 15 cases filed in the United States, and how trade creditors should be responding to these cases.
