Pledges of Equity Interests

How to Perfect it? How to Enforce it? With or Without Foreclosure

Co-Sponsored by the Business and Corporations Law Section

Obtaining an enforceable security interest in the equity of any entity is an important component of any collateral package for a wide variety of real estate and commercial loans, including any corporate credit facility, especially at the holding company level.

In this program, the panel will discuss the methods for creating and perfecting a security interest in equity interests, including where a pledgor’s ownership interest in an LLC or LP is uncertificated and there has been an “opt-in” to Article 8 of the UCC.  The panel will also explore how best to enforce security interests in equity positions and issues pertaining to completing a lawful foreclosure, in and out of bankruptcy, and how holding a security interest in the equity can provide additional protections in the event of a bankruptcy.
