Foreclosure practice has become one of the strongest and most profitable practice areas in the recovering 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 sizable demand for debtors’ counsel to defend millions of homeowners and corporations facing foreclosures, stringent modifications, defaults, and pre-ordained workouts. Over the past few years, 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 understand and benefit from cutting-edge practices. Learn from our distinguished and nationally respected faculty, who will share the best tactics to represent lenders, banks, home owners, debtors, and institutional clients.
