In commercial transactions, most agreements have ‘choice of law’ provisions that enable parties to decide in advance the law governing dispute resolution. In contrast, in fraudulent transfer disputes, the parties are creditors who often neither have a pre-existing relationship with the recipients of transfers nor the ability to negotiate choice of law provisions. One impetus for the changes to the 1984 Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act (UFTA), now the 2014 Voidable Transactions Act (UVTA), the first in 30 years, was the need to address conflict of laws in fraudulent transfer litigation.
Key amendments include the choice of law for voidable transfers, defenses for an obligee or transferee, burdens and standards of proof, and clarification of receipt of ‘reasonably equivalent value’. The Act creates greater consistency with the Uniform Commercial Code, the Bankruptcy Code, and with the uniform rules governing unincorporated business organizations with regard to partnership insolvencies.
In this CLE webinar a panel of skilled practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group, will discuss the newly approved 2014 Voidable Transactions Act (UVTA) and the Significant Amendments for Conflict Laws, review difficulties faced by practitioners under the current law; and provide guidance in addressing fraudulent transfers.
Key topics include:
· The Uniform Voidable Transaction Act of 2014 (UVTA) – An Overview
· Choice of Law
· Evidentiary Matters
· Defenses for Transferee or Obligee
· Series Organizations – Purposes & Significance
· Fraudulent Transfers and Constructive Voidable Transactions
· Adaptation of State on UVTA
· Definition of Insolvency for Partnerships
· Up-to-the Minute Regulatory Updates
