Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide commercial litigators with the tools to help clients enforce and collect judgments. The panel will outline best practices for obtaining and preserving judgments, conducting post-litigation discovery to locate assets, and executing and satisfying judgments, and will discuss the latest strategies for applying alter ego theory and piercing the corporate veil.

Description

Prevailing in a lawsuit is no guarantee that a litigant will receive its hard-fought damages--clients never collect an estimated 80% of civil judgments. Judgment creditors in business litigation may need to engage in supplemental proceedings and discovery and face the challenge of attempting to pierce the corporate veil to turn a judgment into financial recovery.

Trial lawyers in business cases must be adept at using theories such as alter ego liability, piercing the corporate veil, and fraudulent conveyance to enable clients to obtain assets from shareholders, insiders, and related entities to maximize recovery. They must also take advantage of cutting-edge discovery techniques to locate and untangle corporate assets to satisfy judgments.

Listen as an experienced commercial trial lawyer discusses strategies for enforcing and satisfying civil judgments against corporations and other business entities. The speaker will discuss best practices for obtaining and preserving judgments, conducting post-litigation discovery to locate assets, piercing the corporate veil, and executing and satisfying judgments.
