Evan is participating in a panel discussion titled Money Talks: Getting Retained and Paid (Ethically) by the Bankruptcy Estate. The panel is presented by the ABI’s Young and New Members & Ethics and Professional Compensation Committees. The panelists will offer perspectives from across the country in discussing the myriad ethical considerations governing retention and payment by the bankruptcy estate, including attorney or firm conflicts, retention of professionals specifically as to unsecured creditors committees, and the continuing vitality of nunc pro tunc relief.
