New York Enacts New Fraudulent Transfer Law Effective April 4, 2020

Firm Memoranda
On December 6, 2019, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a new fraudulent transfer statute to replace the Uniform Fraudulent Conveyance Act ("UFCA"), which has been in place in New York since 1925. The new law, entitled the Uniform Voidable Transactions Act (the "UVTA"), is intended to modernize the existing statute and bring New York law in line with federal law and the law in most other states. The UVTA will become effective in New York on April 4, 2020. It will apply only to transactions on or after that date.
