Protecting Our Clients' Interests

Many areas of our practice ultimately involve interests in real property. A client may have an estate with commercial or residential real property that needs to be sold. A commercial client might have a lien on an office building, a residential tower, a multi-purpose retail development or even raw, undeveloped land. In every circumstance, there is an interest in real property that must be protected and liquidated. We have the staff and experience to handle large scale foreclosures.

Our attorneys litigate issues affecting secured transactions under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, as well as foreclosures on commercial properties, residences and timeshares.

We have experience in providing guidance to our clients in the disposition of properties pursuant to various methodologies and the recovery of payment from collateral. Whether there is a foreclosure, sale by auction, or an arms-length transaction to a disinterested third party, or even when the client takes the property back via credit-bid or surrender, Forman Holt is there to prepare or review whatever documents may be necessary to  close the deal. We are there to make sure the client’s interests are protected and help to maximize the return  from the property.

We use our specialized knowledge of insolvency law to preserve and protect existing property interests for our commercial and individual clients who are experiencing economic challenges.

  • Present creative transactional solutions
  • Preserve and protect clients’ property interests
  • Close on difficult troubled deals
  • Resolve lien and title issues
