Polsinelli is proud to announce that Shareholder Todd H. Bartels recently co-authored the American Bankruptcy Institute’s (“ABI’s”) Quick Evidence Handbook, Second Edition, which the ABI calls “a practical and highly accessible primer on the mechanics of admitting (or excluding) evidence in bankruptcy cases.”  The handbook, which is the ABI’s principal publication covering evidence in bankruptcy litigation matters, discusses methods to admit the various types of evidence, strategic considerations when deciding what evidence to admit, methods to overcome objections to admissibility of testimonial and documentary evidence, and numerous examples of examination questions necessary to admit various types of evidence.  The handbook also covers expert witness testimony, motions in limine, and hearsay.  The ABI is the nation’s largest association of bankruptcy professionals, made up of over 12,000 members in multi-disciplinary roles, including attorneys, auctioneers, bankers, judges, lenders, professors, turnaround specialists, accountants and others.  Mr. Bartels is a member of the ABI’s Bankruptcy Litigation Committee and a member of Polsinelli’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group, with an emphasis on Bankruptcy Litigation.  In addition to representing bankruptcy trustees, liquidating trustees, and creditor committees in bankruptcy litigation matters across the country, he is also actively involved in mergers and acquisitions-related litigation and shareholder disputes.
