Recorded CD
About This Course:
In this current and prolonged economic downturn, there has been a significant increase in the number of borrowers that have defaulted under debt agreements.

During this period of economic uncertainty, a borrower will likely find itself with fewer options when facing a default. That borrower will be forced to work with its existing lender to obtain either a waiver or a forbearance agreement.

This webinar will discuss the critical actions and legal issues that a lender should consider when entering into a forbearance agreement. In particular, the panelists will address the legal considerations that the parties should consider in determining if a waiver or forbearance agreement is appropriate, certain actions that lenders should consider to bolster its position on a post-default basis, and the types of provisions that the parties may consider in drafting and negotiating a waiver or forbearance agreement.
