Who We Are

The Bankruptcy/UCC Committee consists of lawyers who practice commercial law and specialize in bankruptcy, creditors rights, and secured transactions. The Committee drafts and analyzes proposed legislation concerning the Uniform Commercial Code, as well as legislation that affects other rights of secured creditors under state law, such as the statues governing foreclosure, assignment of rents, and exemptions. The Committee sponsors various seminars, including the annual View from the Florida Bankruptcy Bench, at which the Bankruptcy Judges share their respective views concerning bankruptcy law and procedure. The Committee also studies the interplay between the federal Bankruptcy Code and state laws governing exemptions and creditors rights.
