Our team of experts share best practices for advanced reorganization practitioners and advisors working on the cutting edge of bankruptcy transactions.


Corporate transactions are fraught with complicated legal, business, and financial issues. And transactions in the context of a bankruptcy proceeding often adds a further layer of complexity. Whether representing an asset purchaser seeking to acquire assets “free and clear” of liens and encumbrances; trading claims against a bankrupt company; or negotiating and drafting orders governing the use of a bankruptcy company’s cash, businesses and their advisors must have a robust understanding of the issues they face. This Financial Poise BANKRUPTCY TRANSACTIONS-301 series provides tools for business owners and their advisors to navigate through the landscape of bankruptcy transactions, demystify esoteric concepts, and discuss best practices for advanced professionals working on these matters.

The second episode of the series, Bankruptcy Claims Trading, airs on October 11th at 3:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Mark S. Melickian of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger. He is joined by Gary Marsh of Dentons US LLP, Thomas J. Salerno of Stinson Leonard Street LLP, and Christopher B. Wick of Hahn Loeser & Parks LLP.

Claims Trading in bankruptcy cases has advanced and grown in sophistication swiftly in recent history. Companies and their advisors should be prepared before wading into these waters. How will a claim be treated once transferred? What steps should a company acquiring a claim take to ensure the claim is paid? How should a claim be valued? What kind of documentation will be needed to properly transfer the claim? If a dispute arises regarding the claim, how should the acquiring company defend itself? This webinar focuses on understanding these issues and addressing best practices for advanced reorganization practitioners and advisors working on the cutting edge of bankruptcy transactions.
