American Bankruptcy Institute Bankruptcy Battleground West Conference

Loeb & Loeb LLP is proud to sponsor the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) Bankruptcy Battleground West conference, where partner Lance Jurich will moderate a panel title "The Great Debate."

From the conference website:

ABI’s Bankruptcy Battleground West continues the tradition of bringing seasoned insolvency professionals together to discuss, debate and learn about leading issues of bankruptcy law.

This year’s program addresses some of the most intriguing issues that have emerged during the latest insolvency cycle, including California’s municipal financial troubles, challenges facing insolvent real estate enterprises and the latest legal developments in chapter 11 plan confirmation proceedings.

The program will again include a courtroom-style debate featuring two of the leading practitioners in our field, and a keynote speech by Professor Kenneth N. Klee of the UCLA School of Law. Klee will share insights and experiences from his recent tenure as a court appointed examiner in the chapter 11 cases of media giant Tribune Co. and its subsidiaries. This is one bankruptcy program you will not want to miss!
