Weinstein Speaks at ABI’s Rocky Mountain Bankruptcy Conference
April 2, 2012
Bryan Cave LLP Partner David Weinstein was a panelist at the seminar entitled “The Rampart Range: Defending Against Bankruptcy Filings – ‘First Day’ Creditor Motions” as part of the American Bankruptcy Institute’s 17th Annual Rocky Mountain Bankruptcy Conference in Denver, Colorado on January 19, 2012.
Weinstein discussed the practical and strategic considerations of “First Day Creditor Motions.” The initial days of any Chapter 11 typically involve several moving parts. A creditor may find it useful during the ‘First Days’ to at least consider whether to seek relief from the automatic stay to initiate or continue foreclosure proceedings or resume litigation against the debtor in a non-bankruptcy forum. They may also pursue dismissal or conversion of a Chapter 11 case to Chapter 7, or alternatively, seek the appointment of a trustee or examiner. Weinstein’s comments focused on the strategic and practical considerations that go into each of these decisions.
