    The Financial Lawyers Conference is pleased to sponsor two 3-hour Zoom sessions in which panelists will discuss fundamental issues arising in bankruptcy cases, Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, and appellate advocacy. 

    This “nuts and bolts” program is designed for insolvency professionals who are not yet experts in their fields, either because they are relatively new to practice or do not deal with these issues routinely. Professionals who are lawyers, financial advisors, bankers, and professionals for private lenders, hedge funds, private equity funds, investors, and companies who participate in debt transactions, will benefit from this program. 

    To make it more accessible, this year’s program will again be conducted via Zoom.  We will begin each day at 8:30 or 8:40 a.m., and conclude by noon.  To promote discussion, and to establish and cultivate contacts with other professionals in our industry, we encourage senior members of the institutions who receive this invitation to involve their junior team members in this program.
