Business Law Basics and Lender Liability

You confront business law challenges every day. For example:

  • Imagine a key customer needs funds from a deposit to be available immediately to make payroll. Do you authorize it or let her employees starve?
  • Another client is confronting litigation with a supplier and asks for your advice. Do you recommend going to court or pursuing arbitration or mediation options?
  • Finally, a borrower asks to obtain a second appraisal for a property whose initial appraisal fell short of the purchase price. Do you arrange this?

All these situations represent the challenging juxtaposition of business law and lender liability. As much as you want to help and maintain your valued clients, you may be liable for offering advice or bending the rules.

Learn the basics of business law and the judicial process to understand how the legal system can help or harm financial institutions. You need to know how to avoid a lawsuit due to lender liability by maintaining ethical behavior and conducting effective negotiations.
