Gary Kaplan and Janice Reicher will present the program "Strategies for Protecting Suppliers & Customers of Insolvent or Bankrupt Companies" to the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) San Francisco Bay Area Chapter.

Join the panel of bankruptcy experts as they discuss issues such as:

  • Ensuring payment for goods and services provided to financially troubled counterparties
  • Stopping goods in transit and reclaiming goods sold to an insolvent or bankrupt party
  • Reducing risk of clawback for payments received shortly before a counterparty's bankruptcy
  • Strategies for preferential treatment of debts owed by a counterparty in bankruptcy
  • Navigating contract rights and obligations under bankruptcy law
  • A bankrupt counterparty's potential assignment of contracts without consent
