Webinar: Palliative Care for Terminal Enterprises

Every business has a lifecycle. And sometimes, without timely intervention, a distressed business can slip into a terminal condition. But how can you tell the signs when a business has an impending need for palliative care?

And at the end of its lifespan, the ways you care for a failing or expiring business during its final months and weeks can be critical in mitigating the discomfort and pain experienced by employees, customers, creditors, vendors, owners and shareholders. 

You’ll learn how to diagnose when an issue could be terminal for a business and about the alternatives for winding down a business both in and out-of-court. Attendees will leave with insights into topics such as: how to handle Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors (ABC), when to choose Chapter 7 bankruptcy, how to navigate an Article 9 foreclosure and how to mitigate personal risk and remove liability from these circumstances.
