Maslon is pleased to announce that Amy Swedberg, partner in Maslon's Financial Services Group, has been elected to the Board of Directors of Depart Smart, formerly known as ClearCause Foundation. Depart Smart's vision is for every youth and student going abroad to have safe, rewarding experiences in an industry held to the highest standards with zero preventable deaths and injuries. Depart Smart has developed online education to help students identify and mitigate risks so they return with safe journeys.
"I am excited to join in the Depart Smart mission of promoting safe travel abroad for all students. After reading director Sheryl Hill's book, Walking on Sunshine, and having traveled abroad myself as a student, I know that Depart Smart serves a critical and important need in protecting student safety that was not previously being addressed," Amy shared.
Amy's practice focuses primarily on assisting lenders and other commercial creditors, asset purchasers, adversary proceeding defendants, and indenture trustees with creditor rights and bankruptcy issues. Amy is an experienced litigator in the bankruptcy courts in Minnesota and other jurisdictions. She also assists lenders in real estate foreclosures, receiverships, pursuing loan collateral, negotiating workouts, and drafting commercial loan documentation.
