"Get In, Get Paid"

You’ve landed a great engagement for a financially distressed company which may soon find itself in chapter 11 -- or maybe you just won a creditors' committee pitch -- and your whole team is working around the clock to get up to speed. In the midst of this, you also need to document your engagement terms and take the proper steps to have your retention approved by the Court. Engagement and retention questions from financial advisors, CRO’s, investment bankers and other financial professionals are common. With the proper planning at the outset of an engagement, many retention and payment risks can be avoided or more easily navigated. 

“Get In, Get Paid,” Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP's retention primer for financial professionals, presents a critical overview of each step of the process: getting engaged, getting your retention approved by the Court, and -- importantly -- getting paid. You will leave the program with a checklist and simple tools to ensure that your firm proceeds from engagement to final fee application with minimal disruption and maximum return.
