Subchapter V Trustees: Establishing a New Type of Trustee Unlike Any Other in Title 11
Flexible Duties, Growing Credibility with Bankruptcy Judges, Post-Confirmation Duties, Expanded Powers, Compensation, and More
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will discuss obvious and not so obvious ways in which Subchapter V Trustees (SVT) help both debtors and creditors take advantage of Subchapter V to save businesses and allow creditors to get paid. The panel will discuss the SVT's duties under Bankruptcy Code Section 1183, other duties and services that may not be widely known, review potential concerns, and identify risks faced by those acting as Subchapter V Trustees.
- SVT authority and duties
- Expansion of powers and limits
- Open issues
- Debtor strategies for working with SVT
- Creditor strategies for working with SVT
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- How is the SVT compensated?
- What conflicts can arise between the SVT and the debtor?
- When can the SVT fill in for the debtor, i.e., step into the debtor's shoes?
- What are the SVT's post-confirmation duties?
