“You need to understand fraudulent transfer law because of its broad scope. It might be an old, ancient law, but it is more than capable of handling today’s modern, sophisticated transactions,” says David J. Slenn. In The Fraudulent Transfer of Wealth: Unwound and Explained, Slenn outlines steps that planners can take to minimize a transaction’s exposure to avoidance and proactive measures that creditors can take to reduce the chance of losing assets. Here, Slenn discusses the risks of misunderstanding fraudulent transfer law, the book’s step-by-step guide to key issues, and top lessons learned.
The Fraudulent Transfer of Wealth: Unwound and Explained is available from the American Bar Association in book and e-book form.
