"Preference Issues in Bankruptcy Cases," a Norton Institutes webcast

This event has already occurred.

Norton Institutes conducts advanced CLE seminars on current bankruptcy law and bankruptcy litigation issues with an emphasis on recent developments in business and consumer bankruptcy cases. Topics are presented by a panel of respected bankruptcy judges and attorneys in a relaxed, interactive atmosphere that invites audience participation and accelerates learning.

Andrew Currie and co-panelist Jason Watson will lead this webcast on the preference issues in bankruptcy cases. As debtors are liquidated, an important means to maximize distributions to creditors is through preference recoveries. This panel will review the strategies in pursuing such claims and will review recent decisions relating to avoidance powers, including preferences and their exceptions. Recent cases dealing with the impact of the allowance of S503(b)(9) claims on the new value defense with also be discussed.
