The Committee members comprise counsel for corporations, in
house and outside, and individuals, as well as judges. We
seek to further our individual practices while benefiting the
professional community. The Committee reviews and distributes
summaries and practice pointers regarding recent and trend setting case
law from federal bankruptcy courts located in New York as well as new
legislation of interest to Committee members. In addition, full
committee meetings are held four times a year, in-person or
telephonically, to bring the members together from all over the State in
an atmosphere that is conducive to helping each other and working with
each other. Also, committee meetings provide a platform for
educational programs presented by relevant specialists, either members
or non-lawyer professionals.
NOTE: This is an informal assist, to be used only by an
experienced attorney who may want to add, subtract or modify one or more
check-list items. Any suggested changes are welcomed and should be
directed to the bankruptcy committee for consideration.
