The panel discussion is timely as the U.S. economy is in a massive state of flux and U.S. bankruptcy filings are no exception. Chapter 11 commercial filings are up with large energy and retail companies since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The panel will provide deep insight into these business filings as we approach the end of fiscal year 2020.
