Welcome to the Bankruptcy Section!
Please join us on Thursday September 4, 2014 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm for the BBA Bankruptcy Section’s annual “kick-off” event. We are pleased that two distinguished chapter 7 trustees, Mark DeGiacomo of Murtha Cullina and Lynne Riley of Casner & Edwards, have agreed to share brief remarks about recent experiences briefing and arguing issues before the US Supreme Court. In addition, we will provide a brief overview of the coming year and, of course, allow plenty of time for networking.
The Section’s long-standing commitment to monthly “Brown Bag” lunches will continue this year – offering legal education seminars, training sessions and other social get-togethers covering timely consumer and business bankruptcy topics as well as strategic practice pointers for all of our members. The first Brown Bag lunch will be held on Tuesday, September 9th at the BBA, 16 Beacon Street in Boston. A complete list of dates will be posted shortly.
The Bankruptcy Section is a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas, for professional training, for volunteerism and for dialogue among the bankruptcy bar and bench, seeking the improvement of the profession as a whole. The Bankruptcy Section is made up of many committees, each lead by volunteer co-chairs representing the diversity of bankruptcy practice in Greater Boston. In addition, the Section has appointed a number of member-liaisons to work with other sections of the BBA.
The Bankruptcy Section maintains a website with information about the Section and its upcoming programs, bankruptcy related news and information about our members and their achievements. See http://www.bostonbar.org/sections/bankruptcy-law. We invite you to consult the site often, join the distribution list for the blog which is accessible on the site and contribute your news and insights with us.
Once again, welcome, and we hope you will become involved with the Bankruptcy Section and the BBA. If you would like to participate or learn more about Bankruptcy Section activities, please contact us.
