Litigator Andre Bouffard will serve as a panelist at the 21st annual Northeast Bankruptcy Conference, discussing electronic discovery issues in bankruptcy cases.
Texts, IMs, emails and metadata may contain information that could be helpful — or could be harmful to a client’s claims. An attorney might want to obtain that information from his adversary, and will undoubtedly also want to see the client’s information before his adversary does. Bouffard will be part of an expert panel to discuss and debate the myriad electronic discovery issues that exist and the challenges facing parties in bankruptcy cases, including asserting and avoiding claims of spoliation.
Bouffard represents clients in all aspects of insolvency matters, including business restructuring, bankruptcy, workouts and acquisition and disposition of distressed assets. He heads the bankruptcy and creditor’s rights team and is a certified Creditor’s Rights Law Specialist. He works with clients in a wide variety of industry sectors such as financial services, insurance, investment management, technology, transportation and manufacturing.
Bouffard is recognized by the Best Lawyers in America in bankruptcy and creditor debtor rights / insolvency and reorganization law, commercial litigation and litigation - bankruptcy. He is also named in the Chambers USA Guide 2013 as a leader in financial services litigation, and in New England Superlawyers in bankruptcy & creditor/debtor rights, and business litigation.
This annual conference of the American Bankruptcy Institute will run concurrently with the 9th Annual Northeast Consumer Forum. The conference focuses on current issues related to insolvency, and is open to both members and non-members. The ABI membership includes more than 13,000 attorneys, auctioneers, bankers, judges, lenders, professors, turnaround specialists, accountants and other bankruptcy professionals.
