Nashville Chapter 11 Attorney Robert Gonzales Offers Testimony to ABI's Subchapter V Taskforce
On June 23, 2023, EmergeLaw partner and Nashville Chapter 11 attorney Robert Gonzales testified at the virtual public hearing sponsored by the American Bankruptcy Institute's Subchapter V Taskforce. The specific topic of the June 23 hearing was eligibility for Subchapter V relief.
The ABI's Subchapter V Task Force is committed to reviewing the implementation and administration of subchapter V of chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Task Force will study and evaluate case law and statistical data under subchapter V from February 19, 2020, through and including the present. This study will consider, among other things, how the subchapter is working in practice and whether it is achieving certain underlying objectives, such as assisting debtors and creditors in resolving the reorganization cases of small- and medium-sized businesses more effectively and efficiently, and what may be needed to improve its effectiveness. The Task Force intends to memorialize the results of its study in a written report.
