Apply to serve as a Subchapter V trustee

newsfromcourtsThe United States Department of Justice, Office of the United States Trustee, seeks resumes from persons wishing to be considered for inclusion in a pool of trustees who may be appointed on a case-by-case basis to administer cases filed under the Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 (Subchapter V), which amended chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code (Bankruptcy Code).

Trustees may be primarily appointed to cases filed in Region 1 (which includes cases filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Districts of Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island), as well as in nearby districts as appropriate. Subchapter V trustees receive compensation and reimbursement for expenses, in each case in which they serve, pursuant to court order under 11 U.S.C. §330.

To be eligible for inclusion in the Subchapter V trustee pool, an applicant must possess strong administrative, financial and interpersonal skills. Fiduciary and bankruptcy experience is desirable but not mandatory. Those with business, managerial, consulting, mediation and operational experience are encouraged to apply.
