The COVID-19 Bankruptcy Boom: Preparing for Restructuring Discovery

With the staggering economic effects of COVID-19, U.S. bankruptcy courts are gearing up for a wave of filings that will test the limits of the judicial system. Law firm restructuring practices have already begun expanding, and third-party services providers are forming special teams to meet the nuanced needs of bankruptcy discovery.

 

The timelines will be condensed and the document volumes expansive, so bankruptcy practitioners and in-house counsel need to have their houses in order. Join Legility for a special webinar on how to prepare for restructuring from a data management perspective. Participants will get real-world takeaways from nationally renowned experts on:

  • The state of bankruptcy in the COVID era and beyond
  • How to prepare your data universe for a restructuring filing
  • The important roles bankruptcy counsel, eDiscovery counsel, and legal services providers play in restructuring matters, and how to leverage all three
