Strategies for First and Second Lienholders in an Uncertain Enforcement Environment
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This seminar will discuss the current gray areas surrounding the enforceability of intercreditor agreements in bankruptcy proceedings and offers best practices for negotiating an enforceable agreement.
- Current trends in second lien financing
- Recent (limited) case law on the enforceability of intercreditor agreements in bankruptcy proceedings
- Courts holding that an intercreditor agreement cannot waive a second lien lender’s fundamental bankruptcy rights
- Courts holding that an intercreditor agreement may waive statutory bankruptcy rights if enforceable as a matter of applicable state law

- What critical lessons have creditors' counsel learned in their experiences drafting and negotiating intercreditor agreements?
- What are the key provisions in intercreditor agreements — and how can each lender minimize risk through these provisions?
