I will be a panelist discussing "Specialized Loan Workouts" at the upcoming 4th Annual Special Assets Management Association conference to be held next week at the Santa Barbara Biltmore Hotel. My fellow panelists are the highly capable workout professional Cyndee Herles, Senior Vice President of Comerica Bank and hotel receiver Tim Post of Amber Hotels, Inc.
Cyndee, Tim and I will be discussing various topics of current interest to workout professionals. Our panel's presentation is set for 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 18, 2013.
Topics of discussion will include practical tips on how to size up a problem loan, what to give counsel, how to assess a Chapter 11 filing at the outset, when to get a receiver appointed, when not to get a receiver appointed and how to work with a receiver to maximize recovery for the Bank.
If you are attending the SAMA Conference, catch my partners, Joel Berman and Barry Freeman on Thursday morning, April 18. Joel is on the always interesting "Lender Liability" panel at 8:30 a.m.. Barry is on the panel discussing the important topic, "Engagement of Financial Consultants and Advisors," starting at 11:00 a.m.
SAMA is a terrific organization dedicated to workout professionals. Meetings are held in both Northern and Southern California. If I don't see you at the SAMA Conference next week, I hope to see you at a Northern California meeting sometime this year.
