1.25 hours of General Credit
This panel is hosted by the Remedies Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association and co-sponsored by the Insolvency Law Committee of the Business Law Section of the California Lawyers Association.
Recent federal cases have changed the recoverability of attorney’s fees in bankruptcy proceedings under California law and the Bankruptcy Code. This program will provide an in-depth discussion of the important decisions regarding the availability of attorney’s fees in litigating issues in bankruptcy court, including contractual attorney’s fees provisions under California law, and an overview of the strategies for both creditors and debtors to pursue and recover attorney’s fees when litigating in bankruptcy court.
Audience questions during the Zoom webinar are welcome and encouraged. We also welcome questions prior to the program, which can be sent to Joseph Boufadel at JBoufadel@salvatolawoffices.com.
Written materials will be distributed electronically prior to the program.
