Complex Lending Situations Call for Insight and Experience
The value of taking property as security for a loan hinges upon the lender’s willingness to pursue that property when a loan goes bad. Pursuing payment and the security can be complicated by complex financial relationships. Fraud can stand in the way of repossession or other means of foreclosure. Lenders need an aggressive and cost-effective lawyer to assist in pursuing collateral no matter who may claim a right to it.
