11th Annual Western Massachusetts Bankruptcy Conference

Since we expect consumer bankruptcy to continue to be a busy practice area, it is important to stay up to date on the latest trends in bankruptcy law. The 11th Annual Western Massachusetts Bankruptcy Conference aims to keep practitioners current and up-to-date to best serve their clients.

Featuring most of the Massachusetts Bankruptcy judges, this year’s conference will focus on important updates and issues relevant to both new and experienced bankruptcy practitioners. This year’s panelists will include Connecticut presenters in order to explore similarities and differences between the Massachusetts and Connecticut bankruptcy practices. Specific topics include:

  • Changes in the intersection of bankruptcy and family law
    • What issues in a divorce have important consequences in bankruptcy;
    • How to choreograph divorce and bankruptcy planning; and
    • Implications of same sex marriage and divorce on bankruptcy practice.
  • Successful attorney /trustee interactions and issues
    • Tips and hints at how to best communicate and forward information to your trustee;
    • Do’s and Don’ts from a trustee’s perspective; and 
    • Practitioners advice to trustees on suggestions to improve the attorney/trustee relationship.
  • Updates on new claims and new foreclosure law
  • Comparing bankruptcy practice and procedure between Massachusetts and Connecticut
