Bankruptcy & Corporate Reorganization

The Committee on Bankruptcy and Corporate Reorganization focuses on issues relevant to corporate and individual bankruptcies and corporate out-of-court restructurings. Committee members include lawyers who specialize in representing debtors and creditors in restructurings involving large companies and lawyers who focus on bankruptcy cases for individuals as well as bankruptcy judges and other government representatives, scholars and financial advisors that work in these areas, all of whom help to provide additional and different perspectives to the topics addressed by the Committee.

The Committee serves several roles important to the practice of law in its areas of focus, including facilitating and developing conversations on important and sometimes contentious issues in the restructuring arena through committee discussions and public panel discussions, preparing comment letters on proposed legislation and rule-making and advising and assisting bankruptcy courts on matters of significance to them.
