FLP’s Alan Forsley Intervenes in Bankruptcy Trustee’s Voidable Transfer Action & Recovers $1,761,68.51 for Client.

5/23/2022

FLP’s judgment creditor client Remares Global, LLC levied, pre-petition, on about $3,033,215.05 that debtor fraudulently transferred to his irrevocable trust. The trustee asserted Remares was entirely unsecured and that all was property of the bankruptcy estate. To protect Remares’ interests, FLP then requested, and the court allowed, Remares to intervene in the trustee’s avoidance action. The Court then granted Remares’ motion for summary judgment finding $482,780.07 of the $3.25 million was not property of the Estate because the funds were in college savings accounts. FLP further successfully opposed the trustee’s motion for summary judgment attempting to find Remares as unsecured. FLP then negotiated a settlement with the trustee which gave Remares 50% of the remaining $2,550,434.98 (i.e., $1,275,217.49).
