Tara Schellhorn to Receive IWIRC 2021 Founders Award
Jul 26, 2021

The International Women's Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation ("IWIRC") recently announced Riker Danzig Bankruptcy & Corporate Restructuring partner Tara J. Schellhorn will be awarded the Melnik Award for exceptional contributions by an IWIRC member.  The Melnik Award, named for IWIRC founding Chair Selinda Melnik, is awarded to a member whose contributions to IWIRC, over an extended period of time, have been exceptional.  “Tara gives 110% in everything she does and IWIRC has benefitted time and time again from her efforts,” stated her nominator. “When COVID hit and the world stopped, Tara Schellhorn immediately jumped into action, planning and transitioning many events into virtual events for IWIRC members. Juggling her work responsibilities and two small kids, Tara spent countless hours coming up with topics, locating speakers and overseeing all aspects of these virtual events. As a result of her hard work, IWIRC did not miss a step in providing social, educational and other programs to its members.”

Tara, along with the other Founders Award recipients, will be recognized in the Fall of 2021.  Click here for a further explanation of the award and list of prior winners.  Global Restructuring Review covered Tara’s award here
