Loyola IX Symposium HAS BEEN CHANGED TO APRIL 28-29, 2022

A Note from the Loyola IX Chair:

We are very excited to announce that the Loyola IX Symposium will be held April 28-29, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency John Wayne Airport in Orange County. The theme of the Symposium this year is On The Road Again: California Receiverships In A Shifting Landscape and was chosen to describe our focus on the impact of COVID-19 on the receivership industry, and recent developments and case law impacting receiverships in California.

Chris Thornberg, founder of Beacon Economics, will once again be the Keynote Speaker following the Welcome Dinner on Thursday, April 28.  Chris is an expert in economic and revenue forecasting, regional economics, economic policy, and labor and real estate markets.  He became nationally known for forecasting the subprime mortgage market crash that began in 2007 and was one of the few economists on record to predict the global economic recession that followed. It’s appropriate for him to return now to talk about how the economic implications of COVID-19 are expected to affect our industry moving forward.

We are honored to have Judge Mitchell Beckloff as our keynote speaker Friday morning.  Judge Beckloff is with the Los Angeles Superior Court assigned to the Civil Division.  He currently presides over a Writs and Receivers Department.  Over the course of his judicial career, Judge Beckloff has heard matters in the juvenile, family, probate and civil courts.  He was appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Prior to his appointment, Judge Beckloff served as a judicial officer (Juvenile Court Referee and later Commissioner) since 1999 or roughly twenty years in our judicial system.   His law school training:  he graduated magna cum laude from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles (a law school familiar to nearly all California Receivers).   He received numerous academic awards, was Order of Coif, member of Alpha Sigma Nu and an Editor of the Law Review.   His undergraduate degree is from UCLA.  Other judicial assignments include Supervising Judge of the Probate Division from 2009 to 2013, and Supervising Judge for the Western District of the Court from 2016 to 2018 and now Writs and Receivers.

Two titans in the industry, Doug Wilson and Joel Weinberg, will also be discussing their analysis of Receiverships as a result of COVID-19, and where they see the industry headed. In addition, they will talk about areas that are likely to see the most impact and increase on the need for receiverships as a result of COVID-19.

Other programs will include, among other things, a discussion on Cannabis related receiverships, partnership disputes and partition actions, navigating post-judgment and family law receiverships, receiverships in the hospitality industry, and restructuring debt and equity receiverships. For those new to the industry or looking for refresher, we are also including a Receiverships 101 session, going over basics that all receivers need to know.

The Symposium will also feature more than ten sponsored luncheon table discussions on a variety of contemporary topics for newer or veteran receivers and their counsel.

Be sure to reserve the dates of April 28-29, 2022 and join us at the Loyola IX Symposium!
