An introduction to court supervised and out of court options for small businesses in financial distress. The discussion will include the benefits of Chapter 11 and a highlight of the new small business provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, the Small Business Reorganization Act, which became effective on February 19, 2020 and is intended to streamline and make less expensive the bankruptcy option for small businesses.
The speakers are members of the 2020 Small Business Reorganization Task Force, Education and Outreach Subcommittee, a working committee of bankruptcy professionals and judges in the Central District of California established by Chief Bankruptcy Judge Maureen Tighe. One of the purposes of the Task Force is to educate and provide access to small business about reorganization options under the Bankruptcy Code and the Small Business Reorganization Act.
