9th National Symposium on Class Actions

Today’s debt financing deals are sophisticated and complex. It’s critical for lenders, borrowers and their counsel to have an up-to-date understanding of the legal and business issues. This has never been more true than in today’s roiling, unsettled economy.

Osgoode Professional Development’s Intensive Short Course in Secured Lending and Debt Finance will provide you with a thorough, current examination of the key aspects of loan transactions. Experienced instructors will share techniques and strategies you need to maximize the value of your services. They will cover:

• Canadian debt financing — the types of products currently offered and how they
reflect the current business climate
• The objectives and requirements of appropriate due diligence
• What every private practitioner and in-house counsel has to know about FINTRAC, the know-your-client rule, and privacy issues in the context of lending transactions
• Negotiating and drafting loan documentation from lenders’ and borrowers’ perspectives
• Strategic and tactical concerns in taking, perfecting and enforcing security
• Understanding the issues raised by equipment lease financing today
• Understanding priorities and intercreditor arrangements
• Realistic and current best practices concerning opinions (including PPSA opinions)

Plus, don’t miss the optional Post-Conference workshop on Ethical and Professional Issues in Secured Lending and Debt Finance.
