Seminar: Setting Up/Knocking Down Asset Protection Structures

February 23, 2015

Debtors have always been interested in effective shields, just as creditors have sought powerful swords. But today’s turbulent business/investment environment has turned up the pressures on both – pressures which are passed on to legal counsel and other professional advisors. It has never been more important for corporations and individuals to shield their assets from creditors, and for creditors to bring expertise and creativity to bear on their quest to pursue every possible avenue for recovery.

Osgoode Law School Professional Development’s unique program, Setting Up/Knocking Down Asset Protection Structures, will provide professionals with a tangible edge in acting for either side.
Attorneys Howard Rosen and Patricia Donlevy-Rosen, together with other leading corporate lawyers from across North America, commercial litigators, tax and insolvency counsel, and forensic experts will join in a candid discussion of the strengths, weaknesses and risks of various strategies for shielding clients’ personal and corporate wealth from creditors and their counsel.

A multidisciplinary faculty of experts will address key issues including:

  • How far can the lawyer safely go in setting up an asset-protection regime, and how is this affected by timing?
  • The most relevant insolvency laws
  • Under-used remedies in pursuing debtor assets and how to use them
  • What Canadian lawyers can learn from the U.S. experience with asset protection plans
  • The state of the art in asset location and recovery in both home and foreign jurisdictions across a ‘wired world’
