Have you ever experienced your overseas buyers filing for bankruptcy protection or gone into bankruptcy? Exporters often feel helpless when this happens, and it is not uncommon common given the high bankruptcy rate worldwide in recent years.

When the buyer has gone bankrupted, exporters should be well aware of their rights and take immediate actions to protect themselves. This seminar will focus on explaining the US bankruptcy laws, the handling procedures, and provide some feasible and practical suggestions to enhance companies' operational process and document preparation. Insolvencies trends and bankruptcies procedures in major European countries will also be highlighted.

Outline:
1. Different US bankruptcy chapters (Chapters 7, 11 and 13)
2. The procedures in handling bankruptcy orders
3. The effect of bankruptcy orders towards creditors
4. What kind of preventive actions can creditors do?
5. How to trade with companies that had already filed bankruptcies?
6. Case Studies
