Foreclosure practice has become one of the fastest growing practice areas 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 businesses and homeowners facing foreclosures, stringent modifications, defaults, and pre-ordained workouts. The laws across the country have changed dramatically as the federal and state governments have altered procedures, rules, and practices to curb overly aggressive creditors while simultaneously halting abuses by the defense bar. This seminar covers the latest techniques to equip attorneys with the skills necessary to prosecute and defend the winning foreclosure case. The Rossdale faculty for this seminar features three nationally recognized authorities in the practice, who will also cover issues involving MERS, evidence, trial tactics, and workouts. Registration includes access to course and reference materials that serve as a helpful guide to the numerous topics and techniques discussed in the seminar.
