My law partner, Tucker Herndon, and I have been invited by LawReviewCLE to speak at their upcoming seminar The Essentials of Foreclosure Defense. This seminar will be on September 22, 2011, in Nashville at the DoubleTree Hilton.
While we generally represent foreclosing creditors in the foreclosure process, the seminar organizers recognized that “bank lawyers” are probably some of the most knowledgeable about avenues to attack, stop, or stay a foreclosure. They’re right: after probably 500 foreclosures over the past 4 years, we’ve seen it all.
As a result, we’ll be speaking about trends in foreclosure litigation, including lawsuits to stay or enjoin foreclosures, as well as well consensual agreements to avoid foreclosures, like loan modifications, short sales, and deeds in lieu of foreclosure.
Finally, we’ll review the powers of Bankruptcy Courts to stop a foreclosure and, in some cases, attack a creditor’s lien rights.
This should be a lively seminar on an obviously topical area of law. We hope you’ll consider signing up. There will be a Q & A session at the end, and, if you ever wanted to ask a bank lawyer about foreclosures, this is your chance.
