The new sub-Chapter V of chapter 11, created by the Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 (the “SBRA”), streamlines reorganization by removing procedural burdens and costs. Learn who qualifies to use subchapter V, the new role of subchapter V Trustees, and the pros and cons of proceeding under the new scheme.
