Cases Under Subchapter V of the Bankruptcy Code: Benefits and Pitfalls for Trade Creditors

Thomas Fawkes, Partner, Brian Jackiw, Partner, and Jason Torf, Partner, Tucker Ellis LLP

New Subchapter V was added to the Bankruptcy Code in 2020 to create a more efficient and economical process for small business debtors to reorganize. But the benefits to a subchapter V debtor come at a cost to trade creditors. While subchapter V makes it easier for small business debtors, it also impacts the rights that creditors have versus a traditional chapter 11. In this session, our presenter will explain and analyze various aspects of the new subchapter V, including eligibility requirements, differences from a traditional chapter 11 case, the impact of Subchapter V on trade creditors, and how Subchapter V has worked out thus far.
