Commercial Loan Expert in Collateral Stock
A commercial loan expert in collateral stock was needed to respond to a breach of contract action. The plaintiff, an international bank, made a commercial loan collateralized with negotiable stock to a company chaired by the defendant. When the defendant’s company went bankrupt, plaintiff sued to recover the loan proceeds, which had been personally guaranteed by the defendant. Defendant countered that plaintiff had ignored instructions to liquidate the collateral stock when its value began to decline.
IMS was asked to locate commercial lending experts with experience in the area of loan collateral, specifically where the collateral was negotiable stock. The expert was needed to opine on the fiduciary duty of a bank to preserve value of negotiable stock used to collateralize a commercial loan.
