Can a president represent his own company without an attorney infederal bankruptcy court?


T

Tom Lee

Is there a statute or rule which prohibits or allows a President of a
small business (such as a single person S-Corp) to represent his/her
own company in Federal Bankruptcy Court as a creditor against a debtor
who has filed Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

If so, what statute or rule allows this?

Thank you,

Tom

An attorney is not required to file a proof of claim. In litigation,
however, a corporate entity cannot appear except through a lawyer.

Take care.
