Bradshaw, Fowler, Proctor & Fairgrave, P.C. bankruptcy practice area lead attorney Jeffrey D. Goetz recently participated in webinars for two separate organizations.
He was one of four panelists in the Financial Poise webinar “Negotiating and Drafting Cash Collateral/DIP Financing Orders” on April 7, 2020. On April 8, 2020, Mr. Goetz spoke to the Center for Business Growth and Innovation (CBGI) about “Making Bankruptcy a Last Resort”.
Like other businesses, companies in bankruptcy need access to cash to fund operations. But how should a company planning to enter bankruptcy approach this issue if all its cash is tied up by a secured lender? At the Financial Poise webinar, Mr. Goetz discussed what bankruptcy judges may say when the company asks permission to use cash on terms presented by its lender among other topics.
Mr. Goetz discussed how the COVID-19 pandemic may affect small business and the prospect, for some, of bankruptcy consideration at the CBGI event. He spoke to the importance of knowing one’s business balance sheet and near-term sales prospects to understand all legal options.
