Contesting Confirmation

Bankruptcy Battle Royal - Contesting Confirmation

A chapter 11 plan of reorganization or liquidation is the document that controls the methodology and order by which the debtor proposes to pay its creditors. The plan is subject to comment and criticism by any party affected by it – namely, each and every creditor of the debtor, potential targets of causes of action that the debtor may have, and parties that may have potential causes of action against the debtor.  Confirmation of a plan is commonly a key goal in a chapter 11 case. Why? And trying to confirm one is often rife with dispute and litigation. Why? This webinar explores this process and provides guidance as to how to both defend and attack the confirmation of a debtor’s chapter 11 plan.

Anatomy of a Fraudulent Transfer

Anatomy Of A Fraudulent Transfer

Fraudulent transfer law is old. The precursor to our modern fraudulent transfer law dates back to the Statute of Elizabeth, enacted in England in the 16th Century. It was designed to protect creditors against  debtors that would thwart collection efforts by giving away their property with the hopes of having it reconveyed after discouraged creditors gave up on collecting their claim. Today, every state has its own fraudulent conveyance law, which is applicable outside of bankruptcy as well as in bankruptcy. In addition, the Bankruptcy Code contains its own fraudulent conveyance law, codified in §548 of the Code, which applies only in bankruptcy cases. This webinar discusses the elements of a fraudulent transfer lawsuit and how one can be defended against.

Anatomy of a Preference

Anatomy Of A Preference

Chapter 5 of the Bankruptcy Code creates certain causes of action that arise only upon the filing of a bankruptcy case. Specifically, these provisions enable the debtor or trustee to take actions to bring assets back into the debtor’s estate. Most commonly, these come in the form of preference lawsuits. This webinar discusses the standards for bringing these causes of action and then dives into how to defend against them. The panelists also provide practical tips on how creditors can try to protect and insulate themselves from these attacks ahead of time, by taking certain precautions when dealing with distressed business prior to the filing of a bankruptcy case.
