Leslie A. Berkoff Featured Speaker At ABI Webinar “Husky Aftermath-Where Do Things Stand With Actual Fraud?”
Leslie Berkoff, a partner of the firm, will be a featured speaker for the American Bankruptcy Institute’s webinar: “Husky Aftermath-Where Do Things Stand With Actual Fraud?” on Friday, July 27, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. EST.
Courts wrestle with applying Husky to except from an individual’s discharge creditor claims involving fraud or fraudulent transfers. Some courts carve a narrow path, while others take the opinion at its fullest meaning, suggesting a broad new cause of action for nondischargeability. This is especially true for directors and officers who use their control of nondebtor entities to benefit from fraudulent activity, including actual and constructive fraudulent transfers. Such actions also give rise to related breach of fiduciary duty claims and aiding-and-abetting liability that likewise could prove to be nondischargeable.
The webinar’s distinguished panel of experts will debate claims and defenses based on the evolving case law, and provide their views on what lies ahead next.
The webinar is free to attend and CLE is available for those qualifying states. For additional information or to register, visit: ABI Webinar
