The weak economy has made collecting assets and enforcing judgments one of the most profitable areas of legal practice today. There is significant national attention on lenders and borrowers, as well as their efforts to collect or prevent collection of consumer obligations, mortgage and credit card debt, assets, and judgments.

Our nationally recognized speakers will also cover minimizing the effect of bankruptcy on recovering assets, establishing fraudulent conveyances, claw backs, and extracting value from a debtor’s intangible intellectual property holdings.
