Event Summary

Lenders have always been faced with significant dilemmas when it comes to borrowers that fail to make payments. The severe impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy further intensified this existing difficulty although government relief programs have prevented a tidal wave of loan defaults so far. Although it would be reasonable for lenders to proactively mitigate potential risks of loss, efforts to engage with their borrowers should be done with prudence so as not to avoid lender liability claims.

In recent years, many borrowers have attempted to use lender lawsuits during workout discussions, and they are becoming more assertive in leveraging these claims. With the present economic conditions and pandemic implications, lenders should be thoughtful when making loan portfolio decisions now more than ever to ensure that their actions are defensible.

Join the select panel of key thought leaders for a discussion of the most common issues in lender liability claims, and how conflicts arise during the life of a loan. The speakers will also explore practical steps to improve loan administration and enforcement and to mitigate the risk of lender lawsuits.

Key topics include:

Lender Liability Claims – Notable Court Decisions
Recent Enforcement Trends and Their Implications
Common Risks and Pitfalls
Red Flags for Fraud
Best Practices for Risk Management
Lender Liability Litigation and COVID-19
