Webinar - How to Prove that Your Non-Recourse or Recourse Factoring is a True Sale of Accounts and What Happens When the Court Gets It Wrong

with Deirdre M. Richards, Esq. & Lori E. Eropkin, Esq.

The Venue: Webinar

The Schedule:

  • Thursday, November 2, 2017: 1pm - 2pm PDT (Pacific)
One of the first and most important battles in your factoring client’s bankruptcy will be over whether or not your factoring is a true sale. This same issue can face factors in civil litigation as well. Courts in different jurisdictions apply varying tests on this issue. However, there are some key elements that factors can include in their factoring agreements to help prove a true sale under any of these tests. Factors are encouraged to review their nonrecourse and recourse agreements with these key elements in mind.

Topics:

  • * The tests applied by courts to determine if a factoring relationship is either a true sale of accounts or a loan.
  • * The consequences of a court’s determination that your factoring relationship is a loan rather than a true sale of accounts.
  • * The drafting tools that you can proactively employ today to help set yourself up to win the “true sale” battle in court.

Instructors:

    Deirdre M. Richards, Esq. – Partner, Fineman Krekstein & Harris PC
    Ms. Richards concentrates her practice representing lenders and factors in bankruptcy litigation, loan workouts and commercial litigation in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

    Lori E. Eropkin, Esq. – Associate, Levinson Arshonsky & Kurtz, LLP
