The Madoff Ponzi scheme has brought intense scrutiny to the “clawback,” a controversial tool of the bankruptcy trustee that can allow the trustee to clawback funds received from a bankrupt person or entity. Sometimes, as in the Madoff case, the people subject to the clawback are victims themselves.
Please join us today at 2 pm Eastern for a webcast that will look at the “clawback” in detail. Among other things, we’ll discuss the law and precedent on when clawbacks are appropriate, how the trustee in the Madoff case and other cases such as Stanford and Westgate may apply the clawback provision, and how clawbacks can be fought off in certain situations. We’ll also address related economic and policy issues such as tax loss, damages, and perceptions of equity.
Panelists include Rick Kirby, a partner at K&L Gates; Dr. Fred Dunbar, Senior Vice President at NERA Economic Consulting; and Dr. Marcia Kramer Mayer, Senior Vice President at NERA Economic Consulting. Please join us as we address these issues as well as your questions in a free, one-hour webcast. The webcast will be moderated by Securities Docket’s Bruce Carton, and is part of BrightTalk’s Bankruptcy and Restructuring Law Summit.
