Rod Honecker Speaking January 23rd on Recovering Assets in Commercial Litigation, The Knowledge Group

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

Over the years, asset recovery has become its own practice area, evolving to a more complex legal discipline that demands proficiency in civil, criminal, and criminal substantive and procedural laws. Asset recovery professionals commonly deal with cases involving victims of fraud, including individuals, businesses, financial institutions and even governments. In such cases, creditors may recover assets from a remote party other than the corporate debtor by utilizing several legal theories such as alter ego liability, piercing the corporate veil, and fraudulent conveyance. However, counsel for clients seeking to maximize recovery of assets must gather substantial evidence before attempting to pursue a remote party or remote assets.

Current trends also show the prevalence of transnational asset recovery. This demands professional capacities that will allow investigative and forensic services in multiple jurisdictions in a coordinated manner. Counsel may have to face several challenges which include obtaining personal jurisdiction in U.S. courts, ensuring that U.S. law is applied, and overcoming cross-border discovery among others.
