Using Substantive Consolidation and Similar Remedies to Consolidate the Bankruptcy Estate
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will address substantive consolidation which allows the bankruptcy court to treat two or more debtors as one entity, pool the assets and claims of all entities, and eliminate inter-company claims for purposes of administration and distribution of assets.
- Substantive consolidation
- Alter ego
- Piercing the veil
- Best practices for creditors
- Best practices for debtors
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- In which jurisdictions is non-consensual substantive consolidation still viable?
- How does substantive consolidation in bankruptcy court differ from theories of alter ego and piercing the corporate veil?
- Does the bankruptcy trustee have exclusive standing to pursue alter ego claims, or is this remedy available to creditors as well?
- What factors do courts consider in granting these remedies?
- What are best practices for debtors to reduce the risk that their business and financial affairs are not closely intertwined with affiliated non-debtor entities?
