Cram Up Under Chapter 11: Overcoming Objections From Dissenting Secured Lenders
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will instruct bankruptcy attorneys about creating and opposing "cram-up" Chapter 11 plans under which the plan is accepted by junior creditors and then crammed up on senior objecting creditors.
- Cramdown vs. cram up
- Relevant Bankruptcy Code provisions
- Terms of cram up plans
- How to determine if cram up is feasible
- Recent cases
The panel will review these and other significant issues:
- What are the best ways to plan for cram up before filing?
- What covenants may make it impossible to effect cram up?
- What constitutes the "indubitable equivalent" of a creditor's interests?
