Evan T. Miller, an associate in Bayard’s Bankruptcy Group, spoke at an event organized by the Philadelphia Bar Association’s (“PBA”) Banking and Commercial Finance Committee entitled Adventures In Avoidance Actions: What You Need to Know to Navigate Preference and Fraudulent Transfer Litigation on Thursday, December 18 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Evan was one of three featured speakers at the event who delivered an overview of avoidance actions in bankruptcy. Along with his fellow presenters, he discussed the fundamentals of avoidance actions, recent cases within the Third Circuit related to indirect transfers and the contemporaneous exchange for new value defense, the ordinary course of business defense in situations where there is minimal history between the transferor and transferee, as well as the Uniform Law Commission’s recent proposed amendments to the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act.
The Philadelphia Bar Association’s Banking and Commercial Finance Committee covers all aspects of commercial financing transactions and hosts programs that focus on practical issues and new developments. Program topics have included legal opinions and investment property collateral.
Evan has been with Bayard since 2009. He is the Co-Chair of the PBA Bankruptcy Committee and is also active on the executive boards of several other professional associations, including the Delaware Bankruptcy American Inn of Court, Turnaround Management Association, and the American Bar Association.
