More Effectively Resolving Distressed Loans

Combining the Academic, the Legal and the Practical to Improve Outcomes


View Recording

The COVID crisis has been financially brutal, leaving many lenders with troubled loans on their books and uncertainty about how to resolve them. Empirical research has shown that, for best decisions on key matters, process matters more than analysis — by a factor of six. Yet, most lenders continue to approach challenged loans through traditional means. In today's competitive environment it is critical that lenders significantly improve how they resolve distressed loans. Combining academic research with the perspective of an in-the-trenches lawyer, this presentation will provide a structured framework for dealing with distressed commercial and agricultural loans, including:

  • Discussing key traits of lenders, borrowers and other parties and how those traits significantly impact the choices made as the process unfolds
  • Identifying major decision-making errors that impact choices in resolving distressed loans
  • Reviewing how the distressed-debt framework can be effectively applied in resolving troubled loans

Join Michael D. Fielding as he provides practical guidance to better help lenders make the right decision at the right time to maximize their recovery.
