Joe Esmont Participates in Competitive Bankruptcy Sale Presentation

News / January 10, 2018

Counsel Joe Esmont presented at the 2017 National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges (NCBJ) in Las Vegas on successor liability in bankruptcy. The “Shark Tank”-themed panel examined complex issues related to sales of bankrupt companies (or their assets). Although assets can be sold “free and clear” of many liabilities in bankruptcy, the panel examined tougher cases involving mass torts, latent injuries, environmental contamination, and creditors who cannot be practically notified of the sale. Esmont is part of the NCBJ’s NextGen Program, for which 40 up-and-coming bankruptcy practitioners are selected each year.
