Principal Ronald Barliant is presenting "Liability of Trustees Issues" at the Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Advisors' (AIRA) Chicago Regional Conference on March 2, 2009.

Mr. Barliant's panel discussion will consider the effect of recent decisions by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and other courts on the ability of a debtor in possession or trustee to prosecute claims for professional liability, breach of fiduciary duty, or negligence, and avoid the loss of the Barton doctrine's protection and the risk of monetary sanctions.

The Conference will also cover topics such as the impact of the credit meltdown, leading trends in today's volatile markets, distressed sales in a buyers' market, financial reporting, liability of trustees, and the outlook under the new Chief Executive.

Goldberg Kohn Principal Jonathan Cooper will also participate in a panel discussion entitled, "Lending Trends in Today's Volatile Markets," which will discuss, among other compelling topics, deal structures and work-out strategies pertaining to the current market.
