Bernstein Shur, one of northern New England’s largest law firms, is pleased to announce that Roma N. Desai, a member of the firm’s Business Restructuring and Insolvency Practice Group, has been selected to participate in the fifth annual Next Generation Program of the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges. The program will be held September 27-30 in Miami, Florida, during the annual meeting of the NCBJ.
Desai, whose practice focuses on commercial bankruptcy and business reorganization, is one of 40 candidates chosen from a pool of more than 80 nominees. She was nominated and selected for the program based on her experience as a bankruptcy lawyer and for her leadership potential among the next generation of bankruptcy practitioners.
“I was honored to nominate Roma for the Next Gen program,” said Bob Keach, firm shareholder and co-chair of the Business Restructuring and Insolvency Practice Group. “Roma is a rising star in our practice group, and this is an excellent opportunity for Roma to interact not only with the judges conducting the program, but also to engage with and learn from her peers from around the nation.”
