The California Receivers Forum’s third 2-day seminar on receivership practice in California at Loyola Law School in downtown Los Angeles on January 16 and 17 was a great success. 200 persons from every corner of California (and beyond) attended the 23 instructional sessions – ranging from 25 to 45 minutes each -- hosted by top receivership professionals.

Nine judges (eight superior court judges and one bankruptcy judge) joined with 40 of the state’s top receivership experts – lawyers, accountants, receivers, administrators and real estate professionals – to create a teaching faculty second to none. The first day’s instruction focused on theory and procedural aspects common to most receiverships, and the second on dealing with specific types of receiverships and problems unique to each.

A receivership is a provisional remedy used primarily to preserve real or personal property assets pending resolution of underlying disputes. Innumerable additional uses for this most flexible of pre- and post-judgment remedies have gained currency (and statutory bases) in recent years as well. Receivers are increasingly being called upon to build-out and / or sell residential and commercial real properties under court supervision, and three of the panel presentations focused on manner of selling properties, unique escrow and title insurance challenges and financing issues -- all presented by industry professionals with a “how-to” perspective.

Loyola Law School offered perfect facilities – two state-of-the-art lecture classrooms, augmented by a tented classroom with live wide-screen monitoring of the presentations. Additional Friday and Saturday luncheon seminars on regulatory agency receiverships and drafting the perfect receivership order – led by Loyola Law School professor and national legal authority Dan Schechter – were highlights of the event.

Fifteen sponsors provided funding that made the program an unqualified success. Torrey Pines Bank graciously host a Friday night dinner for participants in the stylish lobby of their 1930 art-deco LA headquarters building. The evening’s keynote speaker Judge David Yaffe commented on parallels between the California Receivers Forum and ancient trade guilds, whose job it was (and is) to train professionals for a trade and setting high standards.
