This CLE course will provide commercial litigators with an analysis of legal theories that allow creditors to recover assets from affiliates and subsidiaries of corporate debtors and other transferees, namely piercing corporate veil, alter ego liability, successor liability and fraudulent transfers. The program will also look at methods of recovering assets located in foreign jurisdictions.
