San Fernando Valley Bar Association
The San Fernando Valley Bar Association is at it again. Its Business/Bankruptcy/Real Property section is presenting four brief topics of interest to bankruptcy practitioners. Louis Esbin and Steven R. Fox are the speakers. They will present brief topics of interest to bankruptcy attorneys and, as is usual, attendees will add to the presentations. The program is set for Wednesday, June 8th at 12:00 noon. The program will conclude by 1:15 p.m. to allow attorneys to attend hearings at the Woodland Hills Bankruptcy Court two blocks away.
The four topics are:
1. Individual Discharge in Chapter 11 Case Prior to Plan Payments Being Completed. One of the speakers recently obtained an early discharge. The brief (it covers the issues and cites cases) will be given out to attendees.
2. The Means Test. Going beyond the software with some neat ideas. Bring your own ideas as well.
3. When Attorneys Are Held Liable for Errors in the Petition and Schedules. This is a minefield for attorneys with new penalties under BAPCPA.
4. Exemption Planning Under the Dark Light of BAPCPA. Attorney Louis Esbin, who has spent a lot of time with exemption issues will be addressing this issue.
If time permits, the speakers will also discuss the absolute priority rule for individuals in chapter 11 and the ongoing split in case law. If you do chapter 11 work, this is a new (and real) problem.
The speakers are well experienced. Even better, the audience is typically filled with experienced bankruptcy attorneys who make valuable contributions to the program. I encourage you to attend and to also sign up any associates you have.
