Florida, as a business-friendly jurisdiction, has a thriving economy. A thriving economy makes private lending very appealing to both lenders and borrowers. We routinely prepare lending documents on behalf of lenders that ensure comfort and protection in protecting the lender’s rights, and, ultimately, funds. Lending documents can be prepared with or without real property as a security, in which case they are accompanied by a mortgage, or with security in inventory, in which case a UCC statement is required, or with a pledge of membership interest in the borrower or in borrower-controlled entities.
Barakat + Bossa operates comfortably in the factoring space. Jocelyne A. Macelloni, a partner at the firm, has been working in this space for almost a decade, representing several factoring companies in South Florida, both in the preparation of the lending docu- ments and in the enforcement of those documents in subsequent litigation. Jocelyne is well versed in UCC transactions, which are at the basis of the factoring industry. The ability to represent factoring companies both in the transactional and litigation aspects of their matters gives Barakat + Bossa an edge in terms of tackling novel issues before they become a problem.
Given our international exposure, the corporate team at Barakat + Bossa is well versed in CISG based contracts. It is important to understand what the CISG provides for and what it does not. It is also important to understand the role that attorneys’ fees play in the international context, the cost of justice, and the risks of collection unless the documents are accompanied by valuable security.
