A Message from the President

Brett Lieberman, 2019-2020 BBA President

On behalf of the Bankruptcy Bar Association of the Southern District of Florida (BBA), I welcome you to our NEW website.

Please take a few minutes to browse our website. It contains information about the BBA, including upcoming events, member announcements, a member directory, and resources for bankruptcy practitioners. Members may also register for our events through our website. We continually update the website, so please check back often.

We have had incredible accomplishments this year and aim to continue to provide our members with educational and social activities even as we are faced with unprecedented uncertainties.  This year we have honored the distinguished careers of Judges Ray and Olson in their retirements. We have welcomed Judge Grossman to the Bench.  We have hosted a number of brown bag lunches, happy hours, luncheons and other networking events. We are now in the late stages of planning our first Virtual Retreat and hope to see you there!
