Dealing with Financial Distress for Cannabis Companies




May 28, 2020 2:30PM–3:00PM

The United States federal bankruptcy process was created in order to allow struggling companies the opportunity to restructure in an orderly manner with the oversight and protection of special bankruptcy courts.

In this webinar, we will highlight recent court cases aimed at lifting the ban on cannabis companies receiving federal bankruptcy relief, explore alternatives for distressed cannabis companies and review other considerations for cannabis companies nearing insolvency.
