#NACBASEA Spotlight with Richard H. Nemeth and Paul Maschmeyer

Dry Docking Aggressive Trustees: Getting the Overreaching Chapter 7 Trustee Out of the Water and Onto the Shore!
Saturday, October 8th 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Are your clients being subject to out of line requests and turnover actions by overbearing Trustees? Richard Nemeth and Paul Maschmeyer will discuss methods of dealing with these actions including responding to information requests, use of extensions of time to object to requests by the Trustee and how to use the political system to help your client.
 Learn how to defend turnover of mass tort awards and college tuition fraudulent conveyance litigation, and how to exclude inherited IRA from property of the estate (In re Clark).  Stop requests to turn over convenience accounts and use secured creditor carve outs to help your client, not hurt them, and much more.
