JACKSONVILLE, Fla.  (February 15, 2014)   The National Association of Bankruptcy Trustees (NABT) announced that John A. Palumbo, nationally-recognized bankruptcy asset expert, will be a featured guest speaker at their Spring Seminar.  This year’s NABT Spring Seminar will be held at The Biltmore in Coral Gables, Florida from April 4 – 5, 2014.      


Mr. Palumbo will present on “Never Judge a Book by Its Cover: How to Determine If It Is an Asset” where he will discuss how trustees can make more meaningful distributions to creditors by successfully differentiating between valuable and worthless assets in bankruptcy.  Asset cases covered will include criminal restitutions, remainder interests, life estates, fractional interests, annuities, partnerships and corporations, insurance renewables, intellectual properties, and more.  Each year, John assists hundreds of Bankruptcy Trustees nationwide and has been instrumental in the administration and closing of thousands of asset cases.  John Palumbo’s 25 years of bankruptcy experience have provided him a unique insight and knowledge of such topics that continually garners him the invitation to speak at such national events. 


The National Association of Bankruptcy Trustees is a nonprofit association that was formed in 1982 to address the needs of chapter 7 bankruptcy trustees and to promote the effectiveness of the bankruptcy system as a whole.  Each year, NABT hosts a spring seminar and annual convention.  Both events offer accredited educational sessions and social events for an audience of chapter 7 trustees and their staff, judges, employees of the Office of the U.S. Trustee, and associated professionals and businesses, including attorneys, accountants, auctioneers, appraisers, insurance agents, software providers, and bankers.
