In 2019, the New York Legislature leap-frogged the 1984 Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act, going directly from the 100 year old Uniform Fraudulent Conveyance Law to the current version of the UVTA. An expert panel will explain how the UVTA (revised Article 10 of the Debtor and Credit Law) dramatically changes and modernizes New York fraudulent transfer law.
This program will:
- Put into context the historical evolution of fraudulent transfer law from the Statute of Elizabeth to the UVTA.
- Explain the differences between the UVTA and the Bankruptcy Code avoidance provisions.
- Explain the major changes to existing New York law, including those relating to:
- Choice of law
- Statute of limitations
- Burdens of proof and persuasion
- Defenses available to transferees
- Elimination of archaic principles from partnership and secured transaction law
