Pay attention to the practical, behind-the-scenes and day-to-day factors," says Kotarba. "These often supersede the legal aspects of the case.

No matter how you are involved in a bankruptcy proceeding, there is a real chance you will wind up litigating some issue. Litigating in bankruptcy court, however, is very different than litigating in any other federal or state court because the customs, rules and players are all different. Whether you are a general litigator or a business person who has never had to fight in bankruptcy court, this Financial Poise Webinar series is for you if you want to understand some of the more commonly litigated issues in bankruptcy cases.

The first episode of the series, Venue Fights, (Register Here) is available on February 13th and features moderator Lisa Vandesteeg of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer. She is joined by Nora S. Tauke Schweighart of Faegre Baker Daniels, Rob Feinstein of PSZJ, and Steve Kotarba of Alvarez Marsal.

Venue- where a case can be filed- can be a hotly contested issue. This is because, while there is a single federal Bankruptcy Code, there are hundreds of bankruptcy judges throughout the United States and each one has the authority to interpret many of the Code’s provisions differently. And, while debtors are generally given wide latitude to select the venue of their choice, there are circumstances in which creditors or other interested parties successfully challenge the debtor’s choice. This webinar explores how to analyze venue options and how to best challenge the debtor’s chosen venue. It also discusses the issue of venue among nations: traditionally, venue fights centered over where in the United States a bankruptcy could be properly filed. More and more in these days of globalization, venue disputes can span not only states, but also nations. To read more on the subject, click here.
