Piercing the Corporate Veil: Pursuit and Defense of Shareholders’ Individual Assets
May 30, 2018/
Charlottesville, Virginia /
Sponsored by Virginia CLE
On May 30, 2018 two Gentry Locke partners will present a CLE to Virginia CLE attendees at Virginia CLE’s Charlottesville, Virginia headquarters. Michael J. Finney and Alicha Grubb will present alongside an attorney from a Charlottesville firm, Jonathan T. Blank.
The event website page describes the session thusly:
Our experienced speakers will address this complex issue from both the plaintiff’s and the defendant’s point of view, highlighting the issues at stake and sharing practical tips to assist your representation of your client’s interests. Among the issues they will address are:
- How strong is the presumption of the corporate veil?
- What can a corporation do, or fail to do, that makes piercing of the veil more or less likely?
- What is the corporation’s interest in a suit seeking to pierce the veil?
- What is the “alter ego” theory, and how can it be used, or resisted?
- Does the nature of the plaintiff (i.e., IRS or individual or corporation) matter?
- Does the type of court (i.e., normal civil court or bankruptcy court) matter?
- Are there novel theories of veil piercing that may migrate to Virginia?
The event will also be broadcast via webcast and telephone for attorneys who are unable to attend. For more information, visit the Virginia CLE website.
