Consumer & Small Business

TABLE OF CONTENTS

 

1. Overview of Chapter 11 Law & Procedure

2. When Chapter 13 is unavailable

2.1 Section 109(e), when secured debt and unsecured debt limits require chapter 11

2.2 When client is a corporation or partnership

3. Obtaining necessary information to file a petition

5. First day motions and application

6. The first 30 days

6.1 Debtor's duties

6.2 U.S.T. Requirements

6.3 Practical issues

a. Teaching client to fill in the reporting forms.

7. Postpetition income as property of the estate

8. Cash collateral issues

9. Assumption & Rejection of leases & executory contracts

10. Preparing for the Court's Status Conference

11. Unsecured creditor issues

The cost of an unsecured creditors' committee. How they can kill a case (by running up the bill), how they can help a case. Short discussion of ethics of creditors' counsel charging too much to allow confirmation of a plan.

No Creditors' Committee, serve the 20 largest your motions.

12. Treatment of Domestic Support Claims

Pre- and postpetition claims; nonpayment as basis to dismiss, convert, or appoint a trustee.

13. Classifying and treatment of Claims

 

14. Drafting the Plan

If the judge assigned to the case requires the current DS and plan, get ready to prepare a 56+ page Disclosure Statement and 16+ page plan. How do you do this for a debtor with a very limited budget?

15. Drafting the disclosure statement

16. Voting

16.1 Serving the DS and Plan, negotiating for "yes" or "accept" votes. Making sure you have a class vote yes. Setting up a convenience class which will vote yes.

16.2 The absolute priority rule

Is there an absolute priority rule, or can creditors just not object and expect the Judge to apply the absolute priority rule to confirm with 1129(b) in the absence of an objection? Net Disposable Income Test: when triggered;

what's included; implementation

17. Lien stripping and 1111b, payout length

18. Writing a motion to confirm a plan

19. The confirmation hearing

No objections, have to convince the Judge. Objections, be ready for a trial

(really, a trial, call witnesses, cross witnesses, be a real lawyer).

20. Post-confirmation problems

21. Ethics discussion.

22.1 Conflicts of interest

22.2 The lawyer represents the estate, not the debtor

23. Law firm economics

Average hours necessary and expected costs.

How does a lawyer do a super chapter 13 and do it effectively without charging so much the client is killed? This requires using shortened forms.

Some Judges won't want to shorten forms, be careful, shortened forms can make you look like a bad lawyer, but you will get more plans confirmed.
