Through the years, the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Article 9 has been a significant help for borrowers and creditors through its governing guidelines on secured transactions. These guidelines regulate the security interests of creditors, who are given the chance to repossess a borrower’s secured property as a collateral to the outstanding debt. However, securing collateral has become a challenge in this evolving regulatory paradigm.

Thus, practitioners must always keep themselves updated with emerging developments and trends. Having an in-depth understanding of the UCC secured transactions, as well as the fundamentals of acquiring a security interest, is important to avoid missteps.

Join finance attorneys John W. Blyth (Nyemaster Goode, P.C.) and Thomas Loikith (Harwood Lloyd LLC) as they present a comprehensive discussion of the important developments in UCC secured transactions. Speakers will examine challenges and critical issues and will share best practices to properly secure collateral and mitigate default risks.

This LIVE Webcast will discuss the following:
• UCC Article 9: Secured Transactions – An Overview
• Fundamentals of Acquiring Security Interest
• UCC Considerations, Challenges, and Red Flags
