ALFN BANKRUPTCY PRACTICE GROUP
The ALFN Bankruptcy Practice Group (BKPG) focuses on recent cases, bankruptcy rules changes and other issues affecting mortgage servicers. The BKPG focuses on national, industry-wide issues, local bankruptcy rules and rule changes, new debt collection strategies, standing, and MERS, among others. The BKPG meets quarterly by teleconference and may schedule other calls as needed. The BKPG is responsible for coordinating ALFN webinars on Bankruptcy topics; hosting one guest speaker teleconference; and authoring/coordinating a BK insert in the Winter ALFN ANGLE digital magazine and contributing other legal updates for distribution. 

ALFN INTERSECT: SERVICING + BANKRUPTCY
The ALFN BKPG assists in planning our annual Bankruptcy Intersect event each Spring. This day-long event focuses on the intersection of mortgage servicing and consumer bankruptcies, and is custom-built for bankruptcy departments in mortgage servicing companies.
