Gidget Goes Bankrupt: The First 120 Days of a Chapter 11 Case

California Bankruptcy Forum


Date: May 16, 2021

Time: 11:15AM - 12:30PM (PST)

Location: Virtual Event

Abigail O'Brient will be a speaker on "Gidget Goes Bankrupt: The First 120 Days of a Chapter 11 Case" at the California Bankruptcy Forum's Young Insolvency Professionals Program on Sunday, May 16th. 

Young insolvency attorneys find themselves paddling out to draft first day motions or preparing schedules and statements with modest appreciation for how it all fits into the strong currents and tides of a new chapter 11. Get stoked about first day motions, working efficiently with the client or financial advisor to prepare your case, and encouraging a productive (and non-adversarial) relationship with the US Trustee in preparation for the IDI and 341(a) Meeting.
