    “The program faculty were engaging, as well as extremely knowledgeable.  Not only did the program provide excellent and practical tools, but the reasoning supporting using certain tools in particular situations was explained. I highly recommend this excellent program.” – Hon. Margaret Brennan, Circuit Court of Cook County (ret.); ADR Systems Neutral

The seminar was informative and interesting and I highly recommend it.” – Hon. John C. Griffin (ret.); JAMS Mediator

    “This course touched on more than just the mediation, negotiation process.

I found the presenters extremely knowledgeable, engaging and sincere. Further, they addressed complex issues such as implicit bias in a relatable and cogent manner.” – Hon. Mary Colleen Roberts, Circuit Court of Cook County

    “Each video in this series was high quality and the sequence flowed well. It was helpful to hear from experienced professionals on a range of mediation topics and I appreciated the more nuanced advice.

    Topics for the annual commercial bankruptcy seminar will include market update, overview and recent developments regarding bankruptcy venue and Chapter 11 retainers and sources.

    Market Update
    What is happening in the lending markets? With all of the supply chain, inflation and labor issues, will middle market companies see more financial issues? Is PPP money running out? How are lenders going to respond to the issues? A panel of a lender, bank counsel and financial advisor will address these topics.
    Panelists:
    David A. Agay, Chicago Managing Member; Co-Chair, Business Restructuring, McDonald Hopkins 
    Jonathan Weinberg, Managing Director, Monroe Capital 
    Scott Eisenberg, Managing Director, Capstone Partners 

    “We Don’t Talk About Venue”: Overview and Recent Developments Regarding Bankruptcy Venue
    Panelists will present a brief overview of the statutory provisions governing bankruptcy venue, followed by review of a number of “hot button” issues, including forum shopping; ongoing legislative reform efforts; and court-driven procedural changes affecting the assignment of chapter 11 cases. Panelists will also examine the growing popularity of the already-infamous “Texas Two-Step,” focusing on issues raised in connection with the chapter 11 filing by LTL Management LLC, the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary.
    Panelists:
    Geoffrey S. Goodman, Partner, Foley & Lardner 
    Allen J. Guon, Member, Cozen O’Connor 
    Erich S. Buck, Partner Shareholder, Adelman & Gettleman 

    Chapter 11 Retainers and Sources: Disclosure May Not Be Enough
    With the growing use of blocked account agreements, daily sweeps, and lockboxes, debtor’s counsel is often confronted with difficulty in obtaining the requisite pre-petition advance payment retainer.  Often the most likely source for the payment of a retainer is an insider who may have an economic interest in seeing the company reorganize in Chapter 11, and desires to advance funds on a secured basis. The panelists will explore potential issues involving potential conflicts of interest, disclosure requirements, and disinterested requirements, and discuss best practices.   
    Panelists:
    Howard L. Adelman, Partner Shareholder, Adelman & Gettleman 
    Jeffrey L. Gansberg, Trial Attorney, Department of Justice, U.S. Trustee Program 

    Moderator:
    Nathan Q. Rugg, Chair, Bankruptcy & Creditor Rights Group, Barack Ferrazzano; Vice-Chair, CBA Bankruptcy & Reorganization Committee

    Lawyers often get stuck wanting more: more money, more cases, more more more. Unfortunately, they often only find more problems. Come join us as Jordan Ostroff, Esq. of LegalEase Marketing takes us through his journey of blowing HUNDREDS of thousands of dollars on bad marketing.

    Lawyers often get stuck wanting more: more money, more cases, more more more.  Unfortunately, they often only find more problems. Come join us as Jordan Ostroff, Esq. of LegalEase Marketing takes us through his journey of blowing HUNDREDS of thousands of dollars on bad marketing.  He’ll go over what turned it all around: figuring out his ideal client and making decisions with them in mind.  He will walk the audience through a worksheet that helps attendees come up with that avatar for their firm, as well as how to find their ideal clients, and how to create the kind of firm that has them calling today, hiring tomorrow and sending friends and family later.

    Jordan Ostroff is the President of LegalEase Marketing, a fraction CMO for the legal space. He created LegalEase because he couldn't find a company to market his own firm the right way. Everything was either totally cookie cutter or a clear violation of Florida's ethics rules. Based upon the great work from the LegalEase team, he is able to run that company and his firm, Jordan Law FL (a PI firm in Orlando) while only working 2-3 days a week and driving across the country with his wife and kid.  So, if you're a lawyer looking at how to make more money in less time and automate your firm to more consistent cases and happier clients, he wants to chat with you.
