Inevitably bankruptcy will affect your clients – and your practice! This CLE is for any practitioner who wants to learn more about some of the ways bankruptcy affects your practice – and how to stay out of bankruptcy hot water. What happens when a debtor or bankruptcy estate has a claim against your client? Should your client file a proof of claim in a bankruptcy case? What is the scope of the automatic stay? What are the pitfalls of violating the automatic stay? This CLE seminar will answer these questions, and will also discuss bankruptcy hot topics for non-bankruptcy practitioners. Johnston Mitchell and Christine Coers-Mitchell of Coers Mitchell Law LLC are seasoned bankruptcy attorneys who serve on the OSB Professional Liability Fund Defense Panel.
