Breakout Session #2

Unusual (and/or Unpredictable or Ignored) Events in Factoring to be on the Look-Out For

Topics

Surface Freight Transportation – based on the deal between the motor carrier and others, how do you know who your account debtor really is, who is entitled to payment, who are you really dealing with. How do you know if the person you are dealing with must hold a freight broker’s license or is exempt from that requirement.
Merchant Cash Advance Companies – discussion about the ground-breaking decision our firm was recently successfully able to obtain against MCA companies and what it will mean in connection with them giving your account debtors a competing notice of assignment and their failure to attain a senior position based on the priority of the UCC financing statement filings and their effort recently rejected effort to argue that as a buyer of accounts they acquire title vs having to establish priorities.
Governmental Account Debtors (Federal and State Agencies) – what are the unique issues that require attention, such as, is the federal agency controlled by the Federal Assignment of Claims Act, is the agreement subject to the Federal Assignment of Claims Act if a federal agency (this differs from the prior inquiry), is the State Agency controlled by the Uniform Commercial Code and treated as an Account Debtor and even if it is how do you know that you qualify as a party that may seek recovery, are there administrative rules and regulations to look out for that could materially impair your rights and ability to collect from these agencies.
Disclosure Laws – What are the most material differences you should know between the State of California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation’s California Code of Regulations (Title 10, Chapter 30) and the New York State Department of Financial Services Commercial Financing Regulations (23 NYCRR 600, et. seq.)
