About This Course:
Guide your borrower through the default process. Determine which agreement is appropriate and learn key provisions to include in the agreement.

In this current and prolonged economic upturn and covenant light deals, there has been a significant decrease in the number of borrowers that have defaulted under debt agreements. During this period of economic uncertainty, a borrower will likely find itself with fewer options when facing a default. That borrower will be forced to work with its existing lender to obtain either a waiver or a forbearance agreement. In addition, lenders may want to avoid the time and cost of enforcement and bankruptcy proceedings.

This topic will discuss the critical actions and legal issues that a lender should consider when entering into a forbearance agreement. In particular, the legal considerations that the parties should consider in determining if a waiver or forbearance agreement is appropriate, certain actions that lenders should consider to bolster its position on a post-default basis, and the types of provisions that the parties may consider in drafting and negotiating a waiver or forbearance agreement will be addressed.
