POSTPONED: Barry L. Zaretsky Roundtable Discussion: Reorganizations Small and Big

In response to Coronavirus concerns, this event has been postponed. Please check our website periodically for updates on rescheduling.

Topic: Reorganizations Small and Big

Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Business Law and Regulation.

About the Discussion
Recent months have seen major developments across the spectrum of bankruptcy cases. Congress recently enacted the Small Business Reorganizations Act of 2019. That Act seeks to make it possible for small firms to restructure and may point the way to innovations for midsize firms. On the other end of the spectrum, mass torts and wildfires have led large, otherwise healthy firms to seek bankruptcy protection. What lessons can the small learn from the large, and vice versa?
