Best Practices for Lenders and Guarantors In and Outside Bankruptcy
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will provide finance counsel with an analysis of the enforceability of loan guaranties, including bad boy agreements in bankruptcy. The panel will also discuss potential liabilities for the lender and common defenses, and outline best practices for lenders and guarantors to enforce and defend guaranty agreements.

- What legal and business strategies can lenders employ to maximize their recovery?
- What has been the impact of bad boy guaranties in a distressed debtor’s restructuring option?
