Kevin Coleman Presented “Can I Appeal That?” at the 22nd Annual ABI Southwest Bankruptcy Conference

Kevin W. Coleman, partner and co-chair of the firm’s Creditors’ Rights and Business Restructuring Practice Group, co-presented “Can I Appeal That?” at the 22nd Annual ABI Southwest Bankruptcy Conference.

Can I Appeal That?

Do you know the correct procedural answer, and even if the answer is “yes,” can you explain to your client why the practical answer might still be “no”? Corporate bankruptcy attorneys need to understand the procedural and practical effects of a bankruptcy judge’s discretion in key and routine motion practice. This session was great for younger attorneys who are learning the ropes, experienced attorneys who could use a procedural refresher, and bankruptcy judges who want to be sensitive to the practitioner’s viewpoint as to why a procedural appeal right might not always be a practically accessible appeal right.

In addition to Mr. Coleman, the presenters for this panel included:

  • Scott F. Gautier, Moderator, Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi, LLP; Los Angeles
  • Hon. Laura Stuart Taylor, U.S. Bankruptcy Court (S.D. Cal.); San Diego
  • Susan M. Freeman, Lewis Roca Rothgerber LLP; Phoenix
