Principals Ronald Barliant and Jon Cooper Speak at AIRA Chicago Regional Conference

March 2, 2009

Principals Ronald Barliant and Jon Cooper spoke at the Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Advisors' (AIRA) Chicago Regional Conference on March 2, 2009.

The Conference covered 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.

Mr. Barliant participated in a panel discussion entitled, "Liability of Trustees Issues," which considered 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.

Mr. Cooper participated in a panel discussion entitled, "Lending Trends in Today's Volatile Markets," which discussed, among other compelling topics, deal structures and work-out strategies pertaining to the current market.
