NO CLE - NCBJ: Restructuring in the Wake of Coronavirus

The economic catastrophe created by the Coronavirus is unique. In the past, recessions have been prompted by sustained periods of high interest rates. This recession has been caused by a virus and it is hitting the United States and world economy already saddled with record levels of debt. Almost all businesses are dealing with the prospect of sudden ends to cash flow, yet a relatively new generation of companies, "zombies" who earn too little to make even interest payments on their debt are faced with the ultimate challenge. The level of debt in America's corporate sector amounts to 75% of the country's gross domestic product, breaking the previous record set in 2008. Debt burdens are precariously high in numerous industries that are now taking a direct hit from the Coronavirus. Join us for a fascinating fireside chat with Professor Troy McKenzie of New York University School of Law, Jamie Sprayregen or Kirkland & Ellis and Jennifer Hagle of Sidley. They will explore and discuss strategies to use in this unique time in economic history. Is the Bankruptcy Code useful, are there strategies outside the Code which are helpful and how can professionals work to benefit their clients in a world like we have never experienced?
