2017, 22nd Annual Southeast Bankruptcy Workshop

“Shark Tank”!

Do some provisions of the Bankruptcy Code seem so out of date and maddening that you want to call your congressional representatives? Our panel of “sharks” will evaluate pitches for legislation to remedy nagging issues in the Code, including implementing restrictions on the appointment of creditors’ committees in chapter 11 cases, tax exemptions for asset sales under § 363, increasing statutory compensation for trustees, the creation of bankruptcy appellate panels in every circuit, and the elimination of debt limits for chapter 13. Come see whether any ideas make the cut!
