  • Everything the General Counsel Should Know about Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
    (Richard E. Mikels, Panelist )

Rick Mikels will speak about "Everything the General Counsel Should Know about Chapter 11" in a live webinar hosted by West LegalEdcenter.

This panel will discuss business bankruptcy basics as they are essential for the in-house counsel when dealing with their own company's distress, the distress of a supplier, customer, or competitor. Companies facing insolvency must understand their options and their obligations. Boards of directors, in particular, look to the general counsel to advise them about their duties in the “zone of insolvency.” This, however, is just one context which requires in-house attorneys to understand the contours of bankruptcy.
