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

Brian Jackiw and Jason Torf, Partners, 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 presenters 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.

3:30 — 5:00 PM
