Chapter 7 Attorney Fee Bifurcation - Thumbs up, or thumbs down?

Event Description

Deadline to Pre-Register: March 8, 2020

The Consumer Subcommittee of the Bankruptcy Section will meet Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at 6 PM in the downstairs conference room at BLN Offices, located at 2001 Killebrew Drive, Bloomington, MN 55425

Is it permissible for a Chapter 7 debtor’s attorney to enter into retainer agreements with clients to bifurcate services in such a way that allows the attorney to be paid post-petition for legal fees? This is an important issue being contested in a case pending in this jurisdiction right now. The Consumer Subcommittee of the Bankruptcy Section will present a lively panel discussion on this, which will thoroughly address the issue with an examination of how we got here, and a review of the arguments both for, and against, bifurcation of fees.

No charge to attend. Dinner will be served, and CLE credit will be applied for.
 Pre-registration is not required but appreciated for planning purposes.

Ronald J. Lundquist, Craig W. Andresen, and Karl J. Johnson
