Ethan J. Birnberg


Although Congress expanded the power of the bankruptcy courts to decide matters that were "related to" bankruptcy cases four decades ago, the U.S. Supreme Court's decisions in Stern and Wellness have created uncertainty about bankruptcy court jurisdiction with which lower courts still struggle.

Any litigator handling ancillary matters that relate to bankruptcy estates must understand and analyze jurisdictional strategies for the benefit of their clients.

Ethan Birnberg, who frequently represents clients in a variety of bankruptcy matters, will join a group of panelists to discuss these topics:

  • the limitations of bankruptcy jurisdiction
  • consent for the bankruptcy court to issue final orders
  • the bankruptcy court’s power to enjoin litigation against nondebtors
  • the impact of jury demands
  • standards and strategies in withdrawing the reference of matters from the district court
  • issues concerning the appellate process
