California Receivers Forum


Hello and Welcome to the The Los Angeles/Orange County Forum Council

The Los Angeles / Orange County (LA/OC) Council is a regional group of the California Receivers Forum consisting of receivers, attorneys, accountants, real estate brokers, property managers and other individuals who service the receivership industry. We address the local needs and concerns of all parties who participate in the receivership process; facilitate communication between the receivership community and the courts, and strive to raise the level of professionalism of receivers.



LA/OC wants you! We are an active group of receivership professionals, based in Los Angeles or Orange counties, who meet regularly, both socially and in professional settings to network and expand our knowledge of the receivership world.

Our highly-involved council works closely with the LA/OC Administrator to create inventive programming that serves our members. Events include quarterly David J. Pasternak Education Committee-produced programs (for CLE/CPE credit), paired with luncheons (currently being done virtually); happy hours (also virtual for the time-being) and our Annual Holiday Party. Member participation is encouraged! Membership is by calendar year; an Individual LA/OC Membership is $195; a Corporate Membership (four (4) people from the same Firm/company) is $550. Click Here to join.

If you have 7 or fewer years’ experience in the receivership world, no matter your age, join the Young Professionals Committee (YPC) for additional networking and programming. Contact Ryan Baker


The Bay Area Council meetings generally include a guest speaker. The meetings will provide a forum to network, exchange information and receive answers to problems or questions. The Bay Area Council has a long tradition of coming together to do a community service projects such as weekend work morning at a local food bank.
