May 28, 2020 • New York Hilton Midtown • New York, NY
Come hear from the best, and learn practical techniques and tips for navigating the rising challenges of today’s insolvency environment, at the 22nd ABI New York City Bankruptcy Conference this spring. The conference is one of ABI’s largest and most prestigious events — and one of the most significant gatherings of insolvency and restructuring professionals in the New York metro area.
This advanced-level educational forum, designed especially for experienced insolvency professionals, will provide you with invaluable opportunities to connect with the industry’s leading experts. Its expanded workshop format — each of the six concurrent breakout sessions is presented twice with different panelists, offering attendees expanded points of view on the same topics — allows for spirited exchanges between panelists and attendees, and lets you customize your learning experience. Sample up to four concurrent sessions, or dig deeper into two concentrated subjects!
The panel will discuss the Small Business Reorganization Act’s requirement that a trustee (or debtor-in-possession) take into account a defendant’s defenses before bringing an action. This amendment, which is applicable in all cases, requires the plaintiff to engage in reasonable due diligence regarding a defendant’s affirmative defenses before initiating a preference action. The panel will discuss different approaches to satisfy the new requirement.
