David Herman on ABI / VALCON Complex Financial Restructuring Program Panel

Gordian Group Partner David Herman Participates in 2019 VALCON Conference – February 27, 2019

For the first time in 10 years, ABI’s Complex Financial Restructuring Program is back in Las Vegas!

This program offers a unique approach to understanding the role of investment bankers and financial advisors in insolvency and restructuring. A case study will be presented as faculty members play the role of major constituents and dramatize the various perspectives of parties-in-interest.

Faculty will provide insight, practical advice and proposed solutions on how to make a turnaround successful. If you advise clients on restructuring issues, you can’t afford to miss this one-of-a-kind program.

BONUS! Program participants will combine with VALCON 2019 attendees for a final workshop-style session on the day’s case study and a networking reception. Plus, CFRP attendees who wish to also attend VALCON 2019 can save with a special rate that includes both programs!

Bringing the Holdouts to the Table

Though chapter 11 is an effective tool to bind lenders to a transaction, it is not the only option available to advisors. The panelist will discuss strategies to bring holdouts to the table to negotiate a consensual deal so that a chapter 11 filing can be avoided.
