The annual Creditors Practice CLE is held in September, watch for postings here.
In this presentation the speaker will begin with a discussion on Charging Orders and Successor Liability. Creditor rights and remedies sought via charging orders vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of entity involved and the law governing that entity. It is important for the creditor’s attorney pursuing a charging order to recognize and appreciate the remedies potentially available in each case. Likewise, this presentation will address the evolving areas of “Successor Liability”, focusing on theories of (1) assumption of debts, (2) de facto mergers, and (3) “mere continuation”. Next the speaker will talk about Bankruptcy. Creditors’ lawyers who do not themselves venture into the world of Bankruptcy Court still need to be aware of certain key Bankruptcy concepts like the law of Preferences and Dischargeability of debt.
The automatic stay requires creditors to stop all collection activity once a debtor files Bankruptcy. But, sometimes, creditors cross the line, whether by accident, mistake, or by intentional violation. This session discusses what type of actions are allowed and what type of actions may be stay relief violations, as well as practical considerations in handling disputes related to violations of the automatic stay.
