Business Bankruptcy Committee


Welcome Letter

Kay S. KressThe Business Bankruptcy Committee is the world's largest organization of bankruptcy restructuring lawyers made up exclusively of bankruptcy attorneys, law professors and judges. The Committee offers cutting edge educational programs on business bankruptcy for the most sophisticated practitioner to the new lawyer. The Committee meets three times a year; in the fall in conjunction with the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges, at the Business Law Section Annual Meeting, and in the spring in conjunction with the Section's Spring Meeting. The Committee operates through approximately 40 subcommittees, as well as a number of task forces, working groups, and special projects. Each year, the Committee presents dozens of educational programs, many of which qualify for CLE. The Committee also produces webinars on recent Supreme Court and Circuit Court decisions within weeks of the decision at no cost to members. The Committee has become the go-to organization for bankruptcy reform, and develops and reviews proposed bankruptcy legislation and rules. As a nongovernmental organization recognized by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, the Committee is an important participant in UNCITRAL's Insolvency Working Group.

The Committee publishes a newsletter quarterly and publishes booklets and model agreements and pleadings for use by members in bankruptcy cases.

To keep members informed of recent developments and faster web based communications, the Committee is initiating a social media presence on LinkedIn.

We welcome participation, so if you'd like to get involved in the Committee - whether by writing an article for the newsletter, suggesting a topic for a program or webinar, or becoming active in any other way - please get in touch with us.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Chair Kay S. Kress
