Debt Collection in Today’s Cash-Flow Problem Landscape…
Cash flow has never been more of an issue for business and individual debtors. Businesses across all industries are having trouble paying their bills and consumers, too, have been falling behind. The failing economy has led to a tremendous increase in debt collection efforts – an explosion of mammoth proportions. Non-debtor clients have a tremendous fear of not getting the money owed them and they are inundating their business lawyers with calls desperate for help in collecting, whether it be through means without the court’s assistance or through federal and state debt collection law. If you as the creditor’s attorney sit back and don’t swoop in and step up efforts, someone else will and get what they can
The Volume and Large Scale of Business Bankruptcy and Consumer Bankruptcy...
Add to the mix a steady rise in bankruptcy filings throughout 2008, which is expected to hits its peak in 2009. Large-scale corporate and consumer bankruptcies have become a fact of life in the business world. Lawsuits have pushed debtors into Chapter 7, 11, and 13 and with the downward slide of the economy showing no signs of improving, bankruptcies are here to stay as they correspond with the surge in debt. Every creditor must arm itself with a strategy for dealing with defaulting debtors, a clear understanding of how to protect its position if the debtor files for bankruptcy, and a readiness to protect its interests post-petition.
The current economy requires you to take decisive action on behalf of your creditor (non-debtor) clients.
Regardless of your specialty, you are now more likely than ever to have to consider the application of bankruptcy and insolvency law. In this high stakes atmosphere, non-bankruptcy attorneys and lawyers looking to enter the practice need an in-depth “deep dive” into collections and bankruptcy law to understand the process from start to finish, including the playing field and the plays that are called. As counsel for the creditor, it is vital to now be well-versed in the specific set of rules and regulations that apply in debt collection, business bankruptcy and consumer bankruptcy, especially on the non-debtor side, given the several preferences and intense scrutiny from various advocates (Trustees, Judges, consumer advocates, other creditors, etc.). This environment requires that all of the non-debtor parties involved in bankruptcy cases, who each have diverse and often conflicting interests, thoroughly understand all the angles and the complexities of the law.
The answer is American Conference Institute’s Debtor-Creditor Boot Camp, unique in its focus on the perspective of the CREDITOR and designed to provide non-bankruptcy practitioners and attorneys entering the field with the ins and outs of how to deal with insolvent adversaries and how to counsel non-debtors on debt collection, business bankruptcy, and consumer bankruptcy. It’s led by a uniquely assembled, distinguished faculty of top creditors’ rights experts — a “Who’s Who of the Bankruptcy Bar.”
ACI’s Boot Camp conferences, including FDA Boot Camp, FCPA Boot Camp, and Reinsurance Boot Camp, offer unique networking opportunities with in-house counsel and outside counsel across many industries. They are routinely lauded as the highest level “basic training” forums available.
