Certificates of Disinterestedness
In presenting certificates of disinterestedness for employment applications, one should note that the employment standards for a professional under 327(a) --- a "disinterested person" under 101(14) who represents no interest adverse to the estate --- constitute standards that are considerably more stringent that that required of special counsel under 327(e) -- which has no disinterestedness requirement and requires an averment only that the attorney does not hold any interest adverse to the debtor "with respect to the matter on which such attorney is to be employed.
