CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) May 27, 2016

Companies fail all the time, for all sorts of reasons. Some companies become distressed, or even insolvent, because of mismanagement; others because of fraud; others for myriad other reasons- some intrinsic to the company and some extrinsic.

Regardless of the cause, failing or failed companies create a unique set of issues, risks, and even opportunities for all involved. This area of law and finance has become so specialized that no fewer than five (American Bankruptcy Institute; Association of Insolvency & Restructuring Advisors; Commercial Law League of America; National Association of Federal Equity Receivers; Turnaround Management Association) national organizations exist to help those who specialize in the field to stay up to date on the latest developments, strategies, and tactics in the area.

Join leading experts from among the membership of these organizations, as they discuss- in plain English for the non-expert- the basics and the latest in Restructuring, Insolvency & Troubled Companies.

As with all Financial Poise™ webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, and listeners will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the programs.

Episode #5 of the RESTRUCTURING, INSOLVENCY & TROUBLED COMPANIES 2016 series is "Federal Equity Receiverships - 101" airing on June 3, 2016 at 10am CST (Register Here). Moderator Jonathan Friedland of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer will be joined by Michael Eidelman of Vedder Price, Gianluca Morello of Wiand Guerra King P.L. and Ira Bodenstein of Shaw Fishman Glantz & Towbin.

A receivership is a legal tool available to a secured party and to certain government agencies. The use of receiverships is on the rise because it can offer the fastest and most cost-effective method of gaining control over a borrower's collateral upon default or another party's property in the case of wrongdoing. It is important to recognize that these two separate purposes really divides receiverships into two fundamentally different types: first, state court receiverships commenced in connection with real estate foreclosure actions; second, regulatory/equity receiverships requested by state and federal agencies, such as the SEC and FDIC. This webinar discusses both types of receiverships, explains how they are commenced, how receivers are appointed, the powers of receivers, and a host of other details about this increasingly popular tool.
