Peter Russin

Peter D. Russin recently accepted an invitation from the American Bankruptcy Institute to participate on a panel at its annual Spring Meeting in Washington, DC, on the impact of using the IRS as a “triggering creditor” under 11 USC 544(b) to extend the statute of limitations for trustees in bankruptcy to pursue fraudulent conveyances to 10 years from the date of transfer and beyond.  The standard statute of limitations for such causes of action are generally four years to six years depending on the jurisdiction. As a noted thought-leader on this subject, Peter recently published an article in the ABI Journal on this interesting legal theory that has garnered significant attention nationally.
