Join the Consumer Bankruptcy Section for the all new Business Bankruptcy Institute: Force Majeure and Business Interruption Claims as Assets in Bankruptcy Cases, from 9 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. on Day 2 of Legal Excellence Week!

This new and timely program will appeal to business and bankruptcy lawyers alike. Experienced faculty will focus on what happens to claims such as business interruption insurance claims and force majeure contract claims when a bankruptcy case is filed. These claims are actually assets in a bankruptcy case which, if meritorious, will generate funds for the bankruptcy estate and for creditors. The program will examine the intersection of bankruptcy law with insurance and state contract law and will be focused on all of the bankruptcy implications which arise as a result of the claims.

In this age of coronavirus, these claims, currently being litigated in the state courts throughout the county, will no doubt find their way into many of the bankruptcy cases which will be filed as a result of the pandemic. Attending this program will illustrate the issues to be aware of in regard to this evolving trend as businesses navigate their way through the pandemic.
