WILMINGTON, DEL.—Womble Carlyle attorney Morgan Patterson will participate in the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges’ seventh annual NextGen program.

NextGen participants will take part in educational and networking events, starting with the NCBJ’s Annual Meeting Oct. 8-11 in Las Vegas. The program includes the opportunity to work with more than 20 bankruptcy judges in small group sessions.

She is also experienced in representing liquidating trusts and official committees. She practices in Womble Carlyle’s Wilmington office.
