Mora, a Partner in Bilzin Sumberg's Restructuring & Bankruptcy Group and an Executive Board Member of Association of Commercial Finance Attorneys (ACFA), recently spoke to private and in-house attorneys on recent legislative amendments and the resulting changes in commercial bankruptcy law. The event was held at the 2006 Continuing Legal Education Weekend on May 20, 2006 at the Contemporary Hotel in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
Ms. Mora participated on a panel with Judge Michael Williamson of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida and Judge Joel Rosenthal from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts.
"This seminar provides a great resource for commercial finance attorneys to understand and appreciate the impact of new developments in commercial bankruptcy law," stated Ms. Mora.
