Ed Underhill's UCC Article Featured in the Illinois Bar Journal

The June issue of the Illinois Bar Journal featured Ed Underhill's article entitled What's in a Name? For UCC Filings Under Revised Article 9, Everything.  The article discusses recent court opinions holding that even slight misspellings or minor misidentification of the debtor's name on a financing statement will render the filing ineffective.  His article also offers practical advice on how secured creditors can make sure they are not putting valuable equipment/collateral at risk by improperly identifying their customers.

Mr. Underhill is a senior Principal in the Litigation and Distribution & Sales Practice Groups of Masuda Funai.  He primarily represents businesses in commercial transactions and disputes. As a business attorney, with a focus on litigation, he has represented clients throughout the United States in a variety of matters, including cases involving intellectual property rights, contract enforcement, dealer termination; unfair competition, business torts, and other commercial-based civil litigation.
