As with all Financial Poise webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes: think sitcom rather than soap opera. The first episode, Strategic Alternatives for Distressed Businesses premieres on January 14, 2015.

Although bankruptcy is the best known option for a distressed business, it is only one option of many. Attorneys and other trusted business advisors must be aware of all the options. This panel discusses assignments for the benefit of creditors; friendly foreclosure; out of court workouts; and the other options available to a struggling business.

The other episodes in the series include those listed below.

Everything the GC Should Know About Chapter 11 (January 28, 2015)
How to Buy Distressed Businesses/Assets Outside of Bankruptcy (February 11, 2015)
