Bankruptcy is a confusing, rule driven area of law. It’s also an area most civil litigators know little about. In this webinar, we will discuss ways to protect yourself and your client when a bankruptcy is threatened, or even when a bankruptcy stops your case short. You’ll learn what to do to preserve your clients’ claims and your attorney’s fees, as well as how to navigate unfamiliar waters confidently when your practice intersects with bankruptcy law.

What You Will Learn

  • How to stay out of trouble with the automatic stay
  • What claims survive a bankruptcy filing
  • How to navigate the bankruptcy world to pursue claims
  • How to navigate bankruptcy trustees
