Bankruptcy Has Its Clawbacks
During the last few years' difficult economy several brokers and charter operators have failed. Much to the surprise of many operators, payments made in the final days of that business, including payments for charter flights, can sometimes be reclaimed during bankruptcy proceedings. These so-called clawbacks are authorized in the bankruptcy laws and are intended to ensure that all of the failed company's debtors have a fair shot at any remaining assets. How can you protect your business if a customer's business fails and you're asked to give back tens of thousands of dollars? Can you fight a clawback? What are your rights during these proceedings?
