4th National Forum on Residential Mortgage Litigation & Regulatory Enforcement
Sutherland Partner S. Lawrence Polk is speaking at the American Conference Institute (ACI) 4th National Forum on Residential Mortgage Litigation & Regulatory Enforcement, October 27-28, 2009, at the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas, Texas. Larry is presenting "Investor Lawsuits: Defending Against Claims Arising From Loan Modifications and Mortgage-Backed Securities." The presentation will include information on Investor Claims Relating to Loan Modifications, as well as Claims Tied to Mortgage-Backed Securities and Other Structured Products.
In the wake of the subprime crisis and ensuing credit crunch, lenders, servicers, investment banks and their outside counsel are faced with new challenges relating to residential mortgages and mortgage-backed securities. Bankruptcy claims and foreclosure counterclaims are on the rise as borrowers seek to stall foreclosure proceedings. Municipalities are becoming more aggressive in seeking damages for and pursuing injunctions against foreclosures tied to non-traditional loans. At the other end of the spectrum, investor lawsuits tied to loan modifications and mortgage-backed securities are on the rise. In addition, reform initiatives at both the state and federal levels, including amendments to RESPA and TILA, will result in increased litigation and enforcement actions in the immediate future. This forum is designed to give attendees the insights and strategies necessary to defend against these new claims and adapt to the evolving regulatory environment.
