Nancy Isaacson, a partner in the firm’s Litigation Department, will be a speaker at the CLE program “New Developments of Bankruptcy Third-Party Releases (Traps for the Unwary),” to be presented by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education and the NJSBA Bankruptcy Section at the New Jersey Law Center on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 from 4:00pm – 5:30pm. Following the CLE program there will be a BBQ reception from 5:30pm – 6:30pm.
The CLE portion of this program will cover new developments of bankruptcy law involving third-party releases as found in a Chapter 11 plan and/or a confirmation order, the necessary burdens of proof and/or proffers (expert testimony, financial information, collectability, defenses, and other such showings) at a confirmation hearing to demonstrate whether the third party releases are appropriate, under what circumstances, and the consequences of what happens when the court fails to make the necessary findings in its decision. The program will also include use of third-party releases under Subchapter V of Chapter 11 and any updates with the Bankruptcy Court and the Office of the US Trustee.
As a member of the firm’s Bankruptcy & Financial Restructuring Practice Group, Ms. Isaacson focuses her practice in bankruptcy and insolvency, with an emphasis on trustee and creditor rights law. She serves as a Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and Chapter 11 Subchapter V Trustee for debtors in federal bankruptcy proceedings and has represented appellants in cases before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. She has achieved a national profile in her area of practice through her involvement in a number of large bankruptcy matters representing tort claimants and landlords. She is an approved mediator for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of New Jersey.
