ABI S.D. Texas Town Hall Meeting On BAPCPA: Ethics and More

August 17, 2006

The Four Seasons

1300 Lamar Street, Houston, Texas

Bring your questions to this open forum featuring Bankruptcy Judges Bohm, Isgur, Schmidt and Steen, with Evelyn H. Biery, Esq., and J. Thomas Black, Esq., a representative from the U.S. Trustees Office, and H. Malcolm Lovett , Jr. as moderator. We promise a lively discussion of current issues facing insolvency professionals in the Southern District of Texas. Topics will include:

  • New ethical issues from the perspective of the Bench
  • New ethical issues for “debt-relief agencies”
  • What is the ethical duty of “reasonable investigation” under §707(b)(4)(C) & (D)?
  • Has the bankruptcy process become more adversarial?
  • Other impacts of BAPCPA on consumer and business cases
  • New local rule for computation of chapter 13 trustee fees
  • Proposed attorney discipline amendments to Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure

The panel members encourage a “no holds barred” Q&A format throughout the entire hour and a half session, so be prepared to ask the question you always wanted to ask. Complimentary networking reception to follow. No charge to attend, but you must RSVP.

Walk-ups are subject to a $25 onsite registration fee

Registration is available On site.
