The National LBGT Bar Association recently launched a webinar series, Lavender Link, intended to connect LBGT in-house counsel with outside counsel that support the organization’s mission to promote justice in the legal profession for the LGBTQ+ community. Washington, D.C. attorney Jeff Tarkenton, joined by JPMorgan Chase Associate General Counsel, Wendy S. Walker, will be among the first to present for the new series. Their presentation will focus on bankruptcy issues in the wake of COVID-19.

With many companies continuing to endure the economic fallout from COVID-19, nearly every business will have to engage with issues related to bankruptcy proceedings in one way or another. Tarkenton’s presentation, “Bankruptcy 101: What Every In-House Lawyer Should Know as We Continue to Weather the Economic Fallout of COVID-19,” will be a one-hour introduction to the most significant issues companies are likely to encounter in bankruptcy cases, including the impact of the automatic stay, getting paid for services rendered, and continuing business with a debtor in bankruptcy. The webinar will take place on Monday, September 28th at 12:00pm ET / 9:00am PT and is free and open to all Womble attorneys, clients, and friends of the firm. Click here to register.

Jeff Tarkenton has more than 35 years of experience in bankruptcy cases and the knowledge and background to deal with almost any issue that can arise in a commercial bankruptcy case.
