Q&A with Ron Greenspan of FTI Consulting

We're grateful to have FTI Consulting as a Platinum Sponsor for our Oct. 18-20th Conference! Learn about their services in this Q&A:

For a new NAFER member who may not be familiar with your company and/or its solutions, can you tell us a bit about how your company/organization formed and it's key value propositions to receivers?

FTI Consulting is a leading global provider of integrated professional services of most benefit to complex receiverships.  Under one roof, and from offices in the major financial centers of 26 countries, we offer world-class turnaround and reorganization consulting, operational improvement, forensic investigations, litigation and e-discovery support, crisis communications and economic consulting.
Are there any specific industry topics you'd like to discuss as we look towards the NAFER conference to showcase your viewpoint(s) as a service provider for many in this industry?
Best practices to contain administrative/professional costs and ensure high value-added (cost/benefit) services.  Innovative provisions in receivership orders to promote efficient and effective receiverships.
What advice would you give someone who has recently entered into the receivership industry based on your interactions with so many in this line of work?

There is no substitute for having “been there, done that”.  Find the most experienced and knowledgeable receiver and/or service provider to the industry and team with him/her to benefit from their invaluable expertise.  Minimizing rookie mistakes, and there are many potential pitfalls, is essential if one wants to succeed quickly in this highly competitive and complex field.
What are some tools that you feel are unknown or underutilized to some clients/NAFER members that you provide that you feel would be beneficial to be exposed to for their practice?

Great ideas.  I never leave a meeting without new insights and ideas to improve the administration and outcomes of my receiverships.

Harnessing the power of “big data” and emerging artificial intelligence are now crucial for efficient and effective forensic investigations.  For example, de-duplicating email and document archives, through automated processes, can reduce storage costs (and search time) by a factor of 3x-5x.  Similarly, powerful e-discovery programs can greatly streamline and economize litigation and, as importantly, enhance outcomes.

What have you found to be most valuable in your membership in / involvement with NAFER?

Great ideas.  I never leave a meeting without new insights and ideas to improve the administration and outcomes of my receiverships.
