Bankruptcy isn’t anything a creditor should fear! Bankruptcies have for a long time been the bane of both creditors and debtors, but there’s no reason that should be. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can actually be beneficial to a creditor, both during and after the bankruptcy, and as respects current and future obligations or transactions with the filing debtor.
This session is a cost-effective way to minimize the negative impact bankruptcies can have on your business, while providing potential ways to actually turn a chapter 7 into a profitable event for your institution, and arm you with the knowledge it will take to navigate this complex area of law either yourself or with minimal legal help – helping you avoid costly legal fees and harmful write-downs of loans and obligations.
