The Most Trusted Source of Analysis and Advice on Shoring Up Assets, Enforcing Security Interests, and the effect of Bankruptcy Law on secured transactions

The need to protect and enforce security interests is as important as it has ever been. The fallout from the crisis in the financial markets is still reaching all kinds of secured transactions from automobile financing to equipment leases to asset-based lending. In addition, securitizations are facing a new set of risks.

For over 30 years, Clarks' The Law of Secured Transactions under the Uniform Commercial Code has been the authoritative guide on secured lending. Leading authorities Barkley Clark and Barbara Clark continue to provide the financial services industry with trusted legal analysis of trends and developments from the courts, Congress, and regulators.
