Art of Negotiating and Legal Ethics to be Covered During Chicago/Midwest TMA Workshop


Achieving success through proven negotiation strategies will be the topic of a full day seminar hosted by the Chicago/Midwest chapter of the Turnaround Management Association (TMA) on Friday, June 1. The program will take place at the Standard Club, 320 S. Plymouth Court, with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m.
Ideal for professionals in all career stages, the workshop will cover multiparty negotiating with a focus on insolvency cases. The day begins with a session providing a practical framework that can be applied to virtually every business negotiation. The afternoon session will allow attendees to participate as teams in a simulated negotiation based on an insolvency case, applying lessons learned earlier in the day.

Paul Chadha, a corporate attorney at Accenture and adjunct professor of law at Northwestern University’s School of Law, will be teaching the course and leading the simulation.

During the noon luncheon, Faye Feinstein and Sarah Baker, bankruptcy attorneys with Quarles & Brady, will give a presentation on Ethics in Turnaround Solvency. Through real world examples and cases, Feinstein and Baker will provide insight into common ethical dilemmas and issues facing professionals in the industry. The program has been approved for 6.0 general MCLE credits and 5.0 CTP credits. For accountants, the course also qualifies for CPE credits. Additional professional ethic credits are pending for the luncheon panel discussion.
The day wraps up with a hosted networking reception beginning at 4:45 p.m. Cost to attend the workshop, luncheon and reception is $125 for TMA members; $160 for non-members and $60 for TMA NextGen members and students. To register, call 815.469.2935 or visit
