A Note from the Loyola IX Chair:

We are very excited to announce that the Loyola IX Symposium will be held January 20-21, 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, January 20.  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 Houston attorney Zack Clement, who has led numerous financial restructuring transactions and insolvency litigation matters during his 40 years of law practice at Sidley, Weil and Fulbright as the Keynote speaker on Friday, January 21. 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 January 20-21, 2022 and join us at the Loyola IX Symposium!
