Gustavo Chico-Barris, Esq. Panelist at Virtual Caribbean Insolvency Symposium

The American Bankruptcy Institute will present its Virtual Caribbean Insolvency Symposium on February 9, 2020.

Ferraiuoli’s Senior Member, Gustavo Chico-Barris, Esq. will be one of the participants in the Subchapter V in the COVID-19 Era Panel.

This panel will explore the development of subchapter V bankruptcies during their first year of existence, a.k.a. the COVID-19 era. The panelists will first perform a brief review of subchapter V bankruptcy cases and the way in which they differ from standard chapter 11 cases. The panel will then discuss issues relating to CARES Act funding in subchapter V cases and explore various hot issues in subchapter V, such as the aggregation of debts among affiliates. Finally, the panelists will discuss “anomaly” filings and attempts by seemingly ineligible companies to obtain relief under subchapter V.
