This CLE webinar will guide counsel to commercial borrowers and lenders facing a mezzanine loan foreclosure under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). The panel will outline best practices for lenders to carry out a UCC foreclosure on a mezzanine loan.

Description

Mezzanine lenders face a multitude of issues when seeking to foreclose on equity interests securing a mezzanine loan. Similarly, mezzanine borrowers must make several strategic decisions when facing a lender's post-default enforcement of a mezzanine loan.

Unlike traditional mortgage loans, UCC Article 9 governs mezzanine loans. The UCC foreclosure process contains potential pitfalls and grey areas. However, with careful planning, counsel can address legal concerns and minimize risks.

Listen as our authoritative panel addresses critical legal issues for borrowers and lenders facing a mezzanine loan foreclosure under UCC Article 9 and provides best practices to effectuate a UCC foreclosure. The panel will also discuss bankruptcy considerations that impact borrower and lender strategies when a mezzanine loan goes into default.
