Understanding whether a creditor has a secured claim in bankruptcy and what rights a secured creditor has can be instrumental in the outcome of a case. The first part of the presentation will discuss the basics of secured claims and what rights and obstacles a secured creditor might face in bankruptcy. The new addition to the Bankruptcy Code for certain small business debtors is critical for everyone who works in this area of law to be familiar with. The second part of the presentation will discuss the changes and what they mean especially in a post-COVID world.
