As COVID-19 is in our rear-view windows and the risk of recession and economic uncertainties abound, this session focuses on where bankruptcy and restructuring are heading in 2023, the anticipated uptick in Chapter 11 filings, and the impact on credit professionals. The speakers will focus on the macroeconomic factors that are driving a resurgence in Chapter 11 filings, and the industries most likely to be affected. The speakers will then discuss the trend towards speedier Chapter 11 cases, including more pre-packaged and pre-arranged Chapter 11s, bankruptcy cases involving sales of business/assets, and the increase in free-fall Chapter 11s and will present case studies on recent high profile Chapter 11 cases and the impact of fast-paced Chapter 11s on creditor recoveries. The speakers, featuring Lowenstein's Bruce S. Nathan, Andrew Behlmann, and Michael Papandrea, will then review the trend toward virtual formation of creditors’ committees, the increased frequency of small business subchapter V Chapter 11 cases and how they have been faring; and the slowdown in frequency of preference actions and recent preference developments.
