By: COGENCY GLOBAL on Mar 22, 2023 5:03:38 PM

If you didn't have a chance to attend our webinar, "Avoiding Fatal Debtor Name Mistakes on UCC Financing Statements" don't worry - it's now available to watch on-demand. You can still obtain CLE certification for this webinar by watching at least 60 minutes and answering both poll questions.

As we said in the webinar, you cannot overstate the importance of the debtor name when preparing and filing UCC financing statements. 

Watch our March CLE webinar on how to avoid errors when filing UCC financing statements. We’ll review important case law that shows the types of mistakes still being made since Amended Article 9 was enacted. We’ll also provide practical steps to avoid unwelcome UCC filing surprises.
