Moritt Hock & Hamroff Attorney To Present At NEFA Summit On Post-COVID Documentation
GARDEN CITY, NY; March 9, 2021—Moritt Hock & Hamroff (MH&H) announced today that Robert S. Cohen will be presenting at the 2021 Virtual Finance Summit hosted by the National Equipment Finance Association (NEFA) on March 16 and 17, 2021. Cohen will be a featured panelist for a one-hour session in NEFA’s Education and Technology track entitled “Documentation in the Post-COVID World (E-notary/eDocs/Vaulting/Signer Verification).”
As a recognized thought leader in the transition toward electronic documentation for commercial loans and leases, Cohen has written and spoken frequently over the past year on how the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated progress in adoption of electronic documentation by commercial lenders and lessors and their customers. An unabashed proponent of electronic documentation, Cohen says he sees its growth over the past year as perhaps a hidden benefit of the toll the pandemic has otherwise taken on many businesses.
“There’s no longer an excuse not to embrace e-documentation technology,” Cohen says. “If surviving the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that now–more than ever before–we need to fully leverage digital solutions to document and close transactions virtually,” says Cohen.
Cohen, a partner at MH&H and leader of the firm’s Secured Lending and Equipment Finance (SL&EF) practice area, will be joined on the panel by Jennifer Foulds, documentation and funding specialist at Oakmont Capital Services; Kernard Jones, government affairs analyst at Notarize; and Greg Clark, senior solutions architect at Northteq. The panel will be moderated by Beth McLean, vice president of operations at Northland Capital.
Marc L. Hamroff, managing partner of MH&H, said, “We are delighted to have Bob share his insight on this critical technology. Our firm is committed to helping all of us navigate the increasingly difficult waters the pandemic has presented over the past year, and Bob’s presentation at the NEFA Virtual Summit will do just that.”
Cohen’s session will start on Tuesday March 16, at 1:30 PM. Pre-registration for the presentation is required by NEFA: Registration Link
