Must-Know Creditor Basics: Strategies for Asserting Claims and Defending Against Preference Demands in Bankruptcy
Are you leaving money on the table in bankruptcy cases? Are you a sitting duck target for a preference lawsuit? It doesn't have to be this way!
Taking some simple steps can help maximize your recoveries and reduce your risks as a creditor. This webinar, presented by Quarles & Brady LLP and ACC Wisconsin, will cover the basics of asserting claims in bankruptcy cases, including submission of general unsecured proofs of claim, secured claims, administrative priority claims and setoff claims. Attendees will learn how to identify and assert often-overlooked key creditor rights.
The program will also cover the most common defenses to lawsuits seeking recovery of "preferential" payments made to a creditor by a debtor in the months leading up to a bankruptcy filing, and will provide insight on reducing the risk that your company will become a defendant in a preference lawsuit or best situating yourself to defend against such lawsuits when they happen.
Who should attend: This session is designed for in-house counsel, executives, compliance officers, and HR professionals. There is no charge to attend this webinar, but advance registration is required.
CLE: After the event, Quarles & Brady will apply for 1.0 hours of general continuing legal education credit in for Quarles & Brady attorneys and their clients in U.S. jurisdictions where applicable. Participants seeking CLE credit must be logged in, participating from their own device, and must complete the electronic CLE form. Please be sure to include the attendance verification code that will be announced during the presentation, regardless of which jurisdiction you are licensed in. Quarles will only provide CLE credit to those who return the form with the proper code.
The Impact of COVID-19 on Continuing Legal Education: Please note, to best comply with safety recommendations regarding COVID-19, many state bar offices are closed or operating with reduced staffing. This is anticipated to cause significant delays in approval for CLE accreditation. Depending on jurisdiction, the processing time for course approval is expected to take between 2-16 weeks after the course.
