1.25 Hours MCLE. You must register in advance to participate. This webinar replay is part of the $20 Tuesdays Series.
In light of In re Penrod, 802 F.3d 1084, 1087 (9th Cir. 2015), creditors (real estate buyers/sellers, landlords, tenants, parties to contracts) litigating with a debtor in a bankruptcy case may be subject to attorney’s fees awards by the Bankruptcy Court if the matter is “action on the contract.” We will explore attorney fee award exposure in situations one might not expect such as lease assumption/rejection motions, preference actions, and relief from stay matters. Speakers: Jeff S. Shinbrot, Hon. Theodor C. Albert, Thomas H. Casey.
