Ethics in Turnaround Situations

For those needing ethics CLE/CPE credits, here is a timely program.  Many TMA members are required to comply with statutory or voluntary codes of conduct.  But for borrowers and their management teams, not so much.  Is there an ethical standard or code of conduct for a borrower?  Jiminy Cricket's "Always Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide?"  Or perhaps anything that does not violate state or federal law?

Join Our Experienced Group of Practitioners Who Will Discuss:

  • Ethics for Different Stakeholders
  • Borrower and Guarantor Issues and Joint Representations
  • Lawyer and Consultant Engagement Letters, Need for Candor, Getting Paid
  • Statutory or Voluntary Ethical Guidelines for CTP's Lawyers, Accountants
  • Guidelines for Lenders and Statutory Concerns:  FCA, FDCPA, CFPB
  • "Lender Liability" Statute of Frauds
  • Criminal Implications:  Need for Additional Counsel, Much More Likely to See Receiver or Trustee; Suspicious Activity Reports; Sentencing Guidelines
