The Nuts & Bolts of a §363 Motion

David Bowsher, partner in the firm's Birmingham and Houston offices and member of the firm’s Energy, M&A, and Creditor’s Rights & Bankruptcy Practices, served as a panelist for a webinar presented by Financial Poise on August 16, 2022. 

The presentation, “The Nuts & Bolts of a §363  Motion,” explained what a §363 motion needs to include, the procedural requirements a debtor must satisfy to persuade a court to approve it, and the arguments that objecting parties may make in opposition. Importantly, this webinar put a §363 motion into proper context relative to a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case as a whole.
