Description: Over the past few weeks, crude oil prices have declined precipitously during an already particularly difficult time due to the global crisis that has pushed this big news off stage. Numerous companies already have announced significant capital expenditure reductions and the suspension of equity buybacks. Womble Bond Dickinson presented a valuable discussion about how to best manage bankruptcy issues and risks in these uncertain times.

In this webinar, panel members addressed:

  • Common pitfalls in managing credit and legal risk in the upstream sector
  • Problems that can arise in connection with secured hedging facilities
  • Reserve Based Lending issues 
  • Preparing for a counterparty filing
  • Ground zero: the first few days of a bankruptcy. What do I do?

Who should watch?
