Early Stages of a Commercial Loan Workout: Pre-Negotiation Agreements and Other Key Considerations
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide an in-depth discussion of considerations to be made by borrowers, guarantors, lenders, and servicers early on in the commercial loan workout process.

- Potential initial steps to take after default, including a file review and the consideration of default notices
- Pre-negotiation agreements: key terms and considerations

- What due diligence steps should counsel take before engaging in workout discussions?
- When is a pre-negotiation agreement appropriate for a given transaction?
- What are the potential benefits for each side of a pre-negotiation agreement?
- After a pre-negotiation agreement is executed, what comes next?
