The Loan Documentation Workshop is three-day basic legal documentation course specifically designed for asset-based lenders. The goal is to familiarize participants with all aspects of the loan documentation process and to enable them to be active partners with their legal counsel.

The Workshop Covers:

o Overview of the documentation process
o Loan and security agreements
o Negotiation
o Ancillary documents
o Creating and perfecting security interests and liens

“Excellent course focused on negotiation techniques, fraudulent conveyance and perfecting lender’s security interest. The program emphasized looking beyond just the loan & security agreement and the importance of understanding ancillary documents. It helped me to focus on covenants, reps & warrants and necessary documents needed to protect my company in the underwriting process.” - Mark Sullivan, Acorn Capital Group
