US Trustee Brownbag Program on 341(a) – the Dreaded Meeting of Creditors – October 29, 2015

The U.S. Trustee is hosting a unique Brownbag program on Thursday, October 29, 2015 from noon to 1:30 p.m.  We will be discussing issues and concerns related to all matters 341(a)—particularly the rules and rationale behind the smooth and effective conduct of this essential piece of the bankruptcy process.
Proposed topics include:
•             Duration, continuances and calendaring issues in the conduct of 341(a) meetings;
•             Process and protocols in priority requests, juggling multiple examinations;
•             The Role and Expectations of 341(a) Counsel including the consequences of failing to appear, filing incomplete schedules and lack of sufficient preparedness;
•             Rules of Conduct and Expected Behavior in 341(a) Meetings including UST monitoring/in-room security, food and beverages, moving furniture, noise issues, unattended briefcases and interpreter issues; and
•             Responding to UST inquiries.
We seek to both broaden and refine our list of topics in advance of our presentation so now is the time to let your voices be heard.
Please send all comments or suggestions for our open-forum to Trial Counsel Kenneth G. Lau at “” by Friday, October 9, 2015.
Thank you in advance for your interest, participation and input.
Ken Lau, U.S. Trustee Trial Counsel
