Rikki L. Field, a Member of Norris McLaughlin, P.A., will be a guest speaker in the “Real Estate Finance, Investment, and Taxation” class at the Kisiak Real Estate Institute at Monmouth University on Wednesday, September 22, 2010. The course is regularly taught by Ronald M. Shapiro, Senior Vice President and Chief Lending Officer of Union Center National Bank and covers the sources, institutions, instruments and underwriting practices that are employed in the real estate market.
“Ron has asked me to speak about important legal documents used in the real estate finance industry, including mortgages, notes, assignments, guarantees, and leases. I will discuss how and when to use these documents and what the benefits are to the lender. I will also give real-world examples of my experience with borrowers and lenders on the legal side. I think we will make a good team,” explained Field.
Field spent 13 years as Senior Vice President and Assistant General Counsel at First Union Corporation prior to reentering private practice in 2001. Field continues to use the unique experience that she acquired at First Union for the benefit of her clients.
