Co-sponsored with the NBA Bankruptcy Court Committee
NOTE: A boxed lunch will be provided by the seminar sponsor. Please register before or by April 7 to guarantee a lunch at the program.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Attorneys who practice in Bankruptcy Court, representing debtors, creditors, and/or trustees as well as lawyers who focus their practice on franchise law.
From treatment of the franchise agreement and the franchisor’s intellectual property to the relationship among the franchisee, franchisor and secured creditor, franchisee bankruptcy cases present distinct issues that are not otherwise present in a bankruptcy case. Through a role-play scenario, the panelists will discuss these issues, the sales of franchises in bankruptcy and the potential issues for individual guarantors of the franchisee. Both circuit level case law and local opinions and practices will be analyzed. The panelists will also discuss the other side of the coin – the effects of a franchisor filing bankruptcy. This topic is especially timely given the recent bankruptcy filings of restaurant franchisors including Logan’s Roadhouse, Old Country Buffet and Ryan’s Grill.
YOU WILL BENEFIT BY LEARNING THE BEST PRACTICES REGARDING
- The typical issues arising in a local franchisee bankruptcy;
- The current case law developments both the nationally and locally and
- An overview of representation in franchisor bankruptcy cases.
