The Global M&A Network will hold its Distressed M&A Forum and Turnaround Atlas Awards Gala on June 16, 2011 at the Westin on Michigan in Chicago. The conference will examine how the restructuring, reorganization and turnaround industries are evolving in light of rising equity markets, robust credit and lending markets, as well as growing business confidence. The forum will bring together professionals from the turnaround industry to share insights and harvest ideas on the latest strategies in the "new normal" economic environment. Topics will include, "Private Capital: Next Round in Distressed Investments," "US Economic Outlook: Is the Recovery Self-Sustaining?" and "Corporate Strategy: Navigating Change," among others.
Kirkland partner James H.M. Sprayregen will participate on the panel entitled "Valuation: Issues in a Restructuring Context."
