FINANCIAL LAWYERS CONFERENCE Chapter 11 Cases for Individuals An Uneasy Amalgam of Chapter 11 and Chapter 13

Due to the economic downturn, entrepreneurs have resorted and will continue to resort to chapter 11 to deal with illiquid assets and significant business debts in order to remain in control of their property and avoid wholesale liquidation.  These debtors and their counsel and creditors will find themselves in an oddly different legal world, created by BAPCPA’s introduction of many structures and concepts from chapter 13 into chapter 11 cases for individuals.

This program will help you identify and overcome new challenges to navigating this “brave new world” successfully.  For example:

 If post-petition earnings are now property of the estate, for what purposes can they be used? 
 What is “projected disposable income” and why do I have to know? 
 Does the absolute priority rule protecting general unsecured claims still apply? 
 Can a confirmed plan really be modified by creditors after the effective date?
 What do you mean I don’t get a discharge for 30 years?
 Is this constitutional?
