Bankruptcy issues come up over and over in business litigation. The practice of bankruptcy has traditionally been very specialized. As a business litigator, however, it is important to be able to recognize certain pitfalls that can occur when dealing with parties who have filed bankruptcies. It is also important to recognize when to call on bankruptcy counsel to assist your client with filing their own bankruptcy.
This course, taught by Harvel & Binnall associate Louise Gitcheva, reviews several areas where litigators can identify potential pitfalls and also how to best assist clients struggling with issues that may benefit from filing bankruptcy.

Instructor was very knowledgeable and clear in her presentation.
Thank you for this class. I practice in this area, and it is always good to listen to these concepts as interpreted by another attorney.
Good introductory course. May want to highlight separate Federal Bankruptcy Court admission requirements. Just being aware to avoid trying to avoid what might be improper appearance as "counsel".
very easy to understand and clear
