Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
Today Stokes Lazarus and Carmichael LLP (SLC) is proud to announce that the firm is participating in the upcoming “Bank & Financial Institutions Special Asset Executive Conference on Real Estate Assets” May 29th - 30th in Atlanta. The firm is an event sponsor and lending its expertise to three panels.
“This conference is a natural fit for our firm, as we have built a solid reputation on successfully representing some of the nation’s strongest banks and local community banks,” said partner Wayne Lazarus. “We look forward to offering firsthand real world legal solutions to the banks and financial institutions in attendance.”
Over 300 financial institutions and approximately 800 people are expected to attend the conference. During the two-day event, SLC attorneys Michael Ernst, Thomas Keough and Marion Stokes will provide their expertise on panels.
Ernst, who recently earned the Super Lawyer title for the fourth consecutive year, will be speaking to “Why Workouts don’t Work.” He will address important topics such as collateral issues and pre-negotiation tactics. Ernst offers extensive experience representing banks and creditors in the areas of workout agreements and commercial litigation.
SLC partner Marion Stokes will be speaking about “Receivers, When are they necessary?” Stokes will provide acumen on issues such as lender liability, loss share and receivers and insurance considerations. Stokes heads SLC’s Creditor Rights & Collection and Commercial Law practice groups and specializes in representing creditors in the areas of commercial litigation and bankruptcy.
Attorney Thomas Keough will be speaking about “Judgments, What are the Most effective Post-Judgment Best Practices for Collection & Enforcement.” Keough has extensive experience representing clients throughout Georgia in state and federal courts, and will provide insight on topics such as issues that arise in court, shielded and hidden assets and determining the costs and benefits of what could be collected versus what will be spent.
“Our experienced attorneys will provide valuable insight on these panels, but we recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all solution,” said Lazarus. “That’s why we are also giving conference attendees access to short one-on-one meetings with one of our experienced attorneys who can describe more customized ways we can help both large and small financial entities get the results they are looking for.”
Free initial consultations are an ongoing service provided by SLC, and attorneys will be available to meet with potential clients during and after the conference. For more information, or to schedule a consultation, bank representatives can call 404-352-1465 extension 24.
