No matter how a person is involved in a bankruptcy proceeding, there is a real chance of litigating an issue. Litigating in bankruptcy court, however, is very different than in any other federal or state court. The customs, rules and players are all different. This Financial Poise webinar series can enhance the knowledge of a general litigator or a business person who has never had to fight in bankruptcy court. Expert panelists explain how to understand the more commonly litigated issues in bankruptcy cases.

The 6th episode of the "Bankruptcy Battle Royale - Common Litigation Scenarios" webinar series, "Anatomy of a Preference Action" (Register Here) premieres on June 13th at 11 a.m. CT and features Moderator Lisa Vandesteeg of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer. Lisa is joined by Michael Riela of Tannenbaum Helpern, Chris Wick of Hahn Loeser and Michael Schwarzmann of Crowe Horwath.

Chapter 5 of the bankruptcy code creates certain causes of action. These causes of action arise only upon the filing of a bankruptcy proceeding. Specifically, these provisions allow the debtor (or trustee) to take actions to bring assets back into the debtor’s estate. Most commonly, these are fraudulent transfer or preference actions.

This webinar discusses the standards for bringing these causes of action. Then it dives more deeply into how to defend against them. When dealing with a distressed business, there are certain precautions to take before the filing of a bankruptcy proceeding. The panelists provide practical tips on how creditors can try to protect and insulate themselves from these attacks ahead of time.

Each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to business owners and executives without much of a background in these areas. Yet, it is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals. Each episode in the series brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations.

Every Financial Poise webinar is designed to entertain as it teaches. And, every Financial Poise episode in a series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes. Participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or every episode.
