An article my partner Adam Rogoff, associate Seth Van Aalten, and I wrote was recently published in the January 2008 issue of Pratt’s Journal of Bankruptcy Law. The article discusses the significant amendments to the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure that took effect on December 1, 2007. Those amendments covered a range of procedures from omnibus claims objections to motions to assume executory contracts and real property leases to "first day" motions in Chapter 11 cases. 

If you don’t have a copy of the Journal, you can read the article, entitled "Important Changes To Bankruptcy Rules Take Effect," by clicking on its title in this sentence. For more details on the rule changes, use the links that follow for a copy of the full, "clean" set of rule amendments as well as the redline set showing changes made by the amendments to the existing rules, together with the Advisory Committee’s comments.
