A skilled lawyer with knowledge of secured lending under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code can help your financial institution avoid mistakes that threaten or destroy your secured position. At the Law Office of Kevin F. Gillespie A Professional Corporation, attorney Gillespie represents banks, credit unions, businesses and private lenders involved in credit transactions secured by collateral. I can also enforce your rights against the collateral in the event of the borrower’s default, both in civil court and in bankruptcy.
For banks and credit unions, I can help streamline your secured lending operations by helping you develop checklists, sample documents and internal procedures to help ensure the safety and soundness of your loan practices. For specific transactions such as a mortgage security agreement, I can prepare all of the documentation you need from the security agreement to pledge and guaranty instruments. Because the steps for perfecting a security interest can vary depending on the nature of the collateral, my familiarity with Article 9, mortgage lending and fixture financing can ensure that your interest is precise and enforceable.
I also represent businesses and private lenders in the negotiation and documentation of secured lending transactions related to the sale of business assets, or venture capital commitments featuring a mix of equity and credit positions. Whether the collateral protecting your commitment involves real estate, motor vehicles, inventory, accounts receivable or investment securities, my experience with secured lending transactions of all kinds allows me to analyze the transaction and advise you with respect to the soundness of your collateral position and your priority interest in any given security.
My courtroom experience also enables me to represent bank and business clients to enforce their security interests in commercial litigation when necessary.
