2014 NAAG/SABA Advanced Bankruptcy Seminar – Practical Perspectives

September 15-17, 2014

NAAG/SABA Advanced Bankruptcy Seminar – Practical Perspectives is in September!

On-Site Registration Only

September 15-17, 2014
Biltmore Hotel
Providence, Rhode Island

We are pleased to announce that the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) will be joining the States’ Association of Bankruptcy Attorneys (SABA) to present the Advanced Bankruptcy Seminar – Practical Perspectives. The seminar will be held under the auspices of the National Attorneys General Training and Research Institute (NAGTRI) at the Biltmore Hotel in Providence, RI.               
Rather than presenting a longer program that attempts to cover the field for all levels of staff, this year we will be holding a shorter, more focused session dealing with advanced bankruptcy issues that experienced staff may have already encountered or can expect to see in the near future. The seminar will last for two and a half days and will have a theme centered on government-funded affordable housing and other issues relating to the recent mortgage settlement. In addition to standard lecture and discussion sessions, the program will also have a number of hands-on, interactive sessions dealing with investigating financial affairs, trying a fraudulent transfer complaint, dealing with experts in presenting and defending a case, and the like. This conference will be an invaluable opportunity for your staff and staff in your client agencies to learn about not just the theory of the Bankruptcy Code but the practical realities of the issues that arise frequently in major Chapter 11 cases.

The seminar will begin Monday morning with a presentation of a detailed hypothetical from which we will work for the rest of the conference. A distinguished panel of presenters for the rest of the seminar, including bankruptcy judges, the General Counsel for the U.S. Trustee Program, private attorneys from the highest levels of the bankruptcy world, experienced bankruptcy counsel from state, local, and federal agencies, and New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph Foster, whose practice focused on business bankruptcy and commercial litigation before he became Attorney General. Each has been selected based on his or her experience and expertise with respect to the unique issues faced by governmental counsel in bankruptcy court. A tentative agenda is attached hereto; it will be updated and expanded as we get closer to the program dates.

The fee for the seminar is $450; a reduced fee of $400 will be available until August 15, 2014. In addition, to encourage the greatest possible participation from your offices, we will be offering a discount of $100 per registration for groups of three or more persons from the same office, registering at the same time.

If you have any questions contact Camie Carlock, NAGTRI Program Specialist,, (202) 326-6262.
