John D. North, a partner in the firm’s Litigation Department, is on the faculty for a live webcast on “Lender Liability: Tips and Strategies in Avoiding Claims and Other Risks in 2018 and Beyond.” The program, to be presented on Thursday, June 7, 2018 from 12:00pm – 2:00pm (ET), is sponsored by the Knowledge Group.
The inequitable or fraudulent misconduct of a lender arising from the breach of a federal or state statutory obligation, whether intentional or inadvertent, is considered as a lender liability. The liability often arises when the lender exercises excessive control over a borrower's affairs, thus making the lender liable for damages or penalties to the borrower.
Mr. North and his fellow speakers will present tips and strategies to avoid lender liability claims and other risks, and will present an overview of the important issues and significant developments surrounding this topic, including:
- An Overview of Lender Liability
- Damages and Penalties
- Identifying Liability
- Types of Liability
- Safeguard and Defenses
- Recent Court Decisions
- Trends and Updates in 2018
