The Curious Case of the LLC: Often Used, but Rarely Understood

Limited liability companies are outpacing corporations as the preferred business form, but they are a newly popular type of entity. This panel will track LLC law as it rapidly evolves to deal with the unique issues LLCs present. How does the Bankruptcy Code interact with state law in handling these issues, including member- and manager-managed LLCs, single-member LLCs, LLCs as assets of an estate, charging liens, restrictions on attachment or transfer of membership interests, and forced insolvencies? Please join us as we examine the clues to unravel the case of this curious entity.

The panel will tell the “rest of the story” by addressing important — but often overlooked — coverage issues and offering practical advice for purchasing D&O insurance policies (on behalf of distressed entities) and monetizing such policies (on behalf of fiduciaries).

NO CLE - Solving the LLC Puzzle in Bankruptcy

The Limited Liability Company is an ever more popular business entity structure. Its popularity makes perfect sense in that it is designed to limit owners’ personal liability and to provide greater contractual flexibility in all aspects of company ownership, management, allocations, and distributions, among many other things. LLCs may also offer significant tax benefits. However, state LLC law and its interplay with federal bankruptcy law is a minefield of trouble for the LLC debtor or where one or more members of an LLC are the debtors in a bankruptcy proceeding.

NO CLE - Dealing with Directors and Officers

In many bankruptcy cases, unhappy creditors look for someone to blame — and for a source of recovery when the debtors’ assets are not sufficient. Claims against directors and officers — often alleging conflicts of interest or second-guessing business judgments — can serve both purposes, and the existence of insurance coverage makes these claims even more attractive. This panel will discuss D&O claims from both the estates' and defendants’ perspectives, and will review recent case law you need to know about if you are involved in a D&O litigation.
