Cross-Collateralization Clauses in Bankruptcy: Enforcement Challenges for Lenders
Resolving Lender Priority Disputes and Protecting Collateral in the Face of Dragnet Clauses
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will discuss the enforceability of cross-collateralization clauses in bankruptcy, recent case law regarding lender priority disputes and bankruptcy financing, and best practices for secured creditors to protect their priority in the event of the borrower's bankruptcy.
- Cross-collateralization of mortgages
- Cross-collateralization of non-mortgage loans
- Best practices for senior lenders in enforcing cross-collateralization provisions
- Best practices for junior or second lien lenders to protect their priority
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- What steps can senior lenders take to maximize the effectiveness of a cross-collateralization provision in the senior loan?
- What steps can junior lenders take to avoid being squeezed out by the cross-collateralization clause of the senior lender’s lien?
- How have courts treated cross-collateralization in debtor-in-possession financing and what factors should lenders be cognizant of when incorporating these provisions in DIP deals?
Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
