All That You Can't Leave Behind: Law Firm Insolvencies, the Unfinished Business Rule, and Its Impact on Business Lawyers

Business Bankruptcy Committee of the ABA Business Law Section

August 9, 2013

John Fiero will participate in a panel discussion of the recent wave of large law firm bankruptcy filings including, most notably, Dewey & Leboeuf. The panel will discuss why a number of large firms have gotten into financial trouble in recent years and the litigation that has resulted in many of the subsequent bankruptcy cases wherein bankruptcy trustees have sued former partners of the firms to recover on fraudulent transfer, preference and so-called “unfinished business doctrine” claims.

Cosponsored by the Business Bankruptcy Committee and the LLCs, Partnerships, and Unincorporated Entities Committee of the ABA. For more information, visit the ABA: http://www.americanbar.org/content/dam/aba/events/business_law/2013/08/annual/guide.authcheckdam.pdf
