SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Judith Greenstone Miller, a partner in the Southfield office of Jaffe Raitt Heuer & Weiss, P.C. is speaking at the upcoming National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges (“NCBJ”) annual conference in Law Vegas. Jaffe CEO William Sider made the announcement.
The 91st annual NCBJ conference will take place at the Paris Resort in Las Vegas from October 8-11, 2017. The conference will cover a range of timely topics regarding bankruptcy, such as securities law, retail bankruptcies, lending and financing, litigation tactics and more. As a panelist speaker, Miller will share her expertise on the new domestic asset protection trust law (“DAPT”) that passed in Michigan this year on the panel titled “Asset Protection Trusts- How to Make Them and How to Break Them.
“I’m pleased to share my insight about timely trends and new legislation impacting creditors’ rights that bankruptcy practitioners need to know about in order to protect their clients’ interests,” said Miller. “I look forward to working with my fellow panelists to educate NCBJ attendees on asset protection trusts, and the benefits and ramifications associated therewith from both a creditor and a debtor perspective.”
The National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges is an association of the Bankruptcy Judges of the United States which has several purposes: to provide continuing legal education to judges, lawyers and other bankruptcy and insolvency professionals, to promote cooperation among the bankruptcy judges, to secure a greater degree of quality and uniformity in the administration of the bankruptcy system and to improve the practice of law in the bankruptcy courts of the United States.
Miller is a member of Jaffe’s Bankruptcy & Insolvency and Privacy & Data Security practice groups, specializing in creditors’ right and commercial litigation. Her practice involves representing debtors, secured and unsecured creditors, creditors’ committees, and trustees in bankruptcy proceedings-primarily involving Chapter 11 reorganizations.
Judy also represents parties in litigation in complex commercial disputes. She has testified numerous times on pending bankruptcy legislation before the National Bankruptcy Review Commission and the Judiciary Committees of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.
