The Top Ten Reported Asset Protection Cases in the Bankruptcy Setting: A Legal Review and Analysis

Program Number: 2216

Program Date: 05/01/2012


Asset protection and bankruptcy lawyers need to stay current with respect to relevant reported legal decisions in each other’s areas of practice in order to best serve their clients. In this program, Barry Engel (asset protection) and Rob Shilliday (bankruptcy) combine their areas of expertise to provide an informative legal review and a comparative analysis of their carefully selected top ten reported asset protection cases in the bankruptcy setting. Cases discussed involve:
• both domestic and foreign asset protection trusts and other trusts with important principles concerning contempt of court, fraudulent transfers and preferences in bankruptcy, bankruptcy crimes, and alter ego,
• when and if an interest in a trust should be included in a debtor’s bankruptcy estate, and
• practical considerations from asset protection and bankruptcy perspectives when considering whether to voluntarily file for bankruptcy protection when an interest in a trust is involved.
