Foreclosure practice has become one of the strongest and most profitable practice areas in this weak economy. Today, banks and other creditors have retained record numbers of attorneys to foreclose on loans, repossess property, and obtain favorable workouts. At the same time, there has been a surge of demand for debtors’ counsel to defend millions of homeowners facing foreclosures, stringent modifications, defaults, and pre-ordained workouts. The laws across the country have changed dramatically in recent years as the federal and state governments have altered procedures, rules, and even issued opinions to impede overly aggressive creditors while simultaneously curbing defense strategies. This seminar covers the latest techniques to equip attorneys with the skills necessary to advantage clients and grow their practice. Learn from our distinguished and nationally respected faculty, who will share the best practices and tactics to represent lenders, banks, home owners, debtors, and institutional clients.
