Marc L. Hamroff, Robert S. Cohen & Julia Gavrilov Panelists For ELFA’s 50th Legal Forum

Marc L. Hamroff, Robert S. Cohen & Julia Gavrilov, partners of the firm, will be panelists at the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association’s 50th  Annual Legal Forum on May 1-3 in Washington, D.C.

The Forum features a Legal Update session on recent noteworthy cases and an agenda packed with a wide range of topics from workouts to workplace issues that arise in managing the equipment finance business.

Mr. Hamroff, a panelist in the Legal Update session, will speak about many new cases, including two that provide lessons learned since 2020: (1) the Texas Bankruptcy Court December 2021 decision in Bailey Tool & Manufacturing to share takeaways in avoiding lender control over a debtor’s business while navigating a distressed loan workout; and (2) the Shelbourne BRF LLC series of cases arising in the New York State Courts in 2020 and 2021 that developed parameters around foreclosure sales during the pandemic and through the emergence from pandemic restrictions.

Mr. Cohen’s panel will cover legal issues in e-leasing that can be avoided, most significantly what happens when an e-document is signed by all parties and then not properly placed in an e-vault. The panel will also provide an overview of the types of e-transactions in use and a brief refresher and background on the use and implementation of e-transactions for those who are new to e-leasing.

Ms. Gavrilov’s session on diversity, equity and inclusion will cover, among other things, the potential legal ramifications facing companies that do not commit to diversity.
