Panel Examines Banking in North Carolina; MMM Attorneys Offer Information on Avoiding Pitfalls


Raleigh, NC (January 2011) ─ An event to help North Carolina bankers navigate tough economic times, avoid mistakes and steer clear of lawsuits is set for early next month. “Under Fire in the Trenches,” a half-day seminar, will be held Thursday, Feb. 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event, hosted by the North Carolina Bankers Association, features three attorneys from the Raleigh-Durham office ofMorris, Manning & Martin, LLP

“Lenders have had to navigate choppy waters for quite a while now, and we want to be sure they don’t stumble across any more unpleasant surprises,” said Caren Enloe, who is with MMM’s Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights and Commercial Litigation practice. “For example, many bankers may be surprised to learn that in some situations, they are governed by laws they don’t realize pertain to them.” 

Joining Enloe on the panel will be Keith Burns, who heads MMM’s Triangle office, and Chad Sharkey, who will cover bankruptcy-related issues. The agenda includes tips for completing loan documents, avoiding costly mistakes and lawsuits, and coping when bankruptcy becomes business as usual. The Bankers Association describes it as “a must” for lending officers, troubled asset managers, and compliance officers. 

The event will be held in the NCBA Board Room at 3601 Haworth Drive in Raleigh. An early bird rate for people who register before Jan. 26 is available. For more information, visit
