Venue- where a case can be filed- can be a hotly contested issue.  This is because, while there is a single federal Bankruptcy Code, there are hundreds of bankruptcy judges throughout the United States and each one has the authority to interpret many of the Code’s provisions differently.  And, while debtors are generally given wide latitude to select the  venue of their choice, there are circumstances in which creditors or other interested parties successfully challenge the debtor’s choice. This webinar explores how to analyze venue options and how to best challenge the debtor’s chosen venue. It also discusses the issue of venue among nations:  traditionally, venue fights centered over where in the United States a bankruptcy could be properly filed.  More and more in these days of globalization, venue disputes can span not only states, but also nations.
