Shielding assets from creditors and recovering assets for creditors are critical skills for every lawyer and advisor in the business and commercial sphere. In today's turbulent business and investment environment, effective professionals need to know about setting up or knocking down asset protection structures, without comprising ethics and integrity.

Debtors have always been interested in effective shields, just as creditors have sought powerful swords. 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. At the same time, professionals advising in this area must be vigilant to ever-present risks to their reputation and integrity while providing effective representation and counsel.

A multidisciplinary faculty of experts will address creditor-proofing, reviewable transactions, and key related areas, including:

  • How far can the lawyer safely go in setting up an asset-protection regime, and how is this affected by timing?
  • The relevant insolvency laws and their implications to navigate effectively
  • Under-used remedies in pursuing debtor’s 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 chasing assets across the “wired world”
