Uptiers, Dropdowns, and Zombies – Oh My!


Mon, June 24, 2024, 03:00 - 04:00
Online, internet


with Andrew Behlman, Partner, Lowenstein Sandler LLP

and Colleen M. Restel, ESQ, Counsel, Lowenstein Sandler LLP

About the webinar:

Recent financial headlines are filled with buzzwords about companies in financial distress, with terms like “liability management exercise,” “lender-on-lender violence,” "uptiering transaction," “zombie company,” and “Chapter 22” finding their way into the corporate distress lexicon in recent years. This presentation explores examples of these transactions and circumstances and—most importantly—their impact on unsecured trade creditors, the resulting trends in bankruptcy cases, and strategies for unsecured creditors to defend themselves.
