National Registered Agents, Inc. (NRAI) has announced the launch of a yearlong, national education program providing webinars and regional seminars that focus on the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Revised Article 9.
"Recent changes to the UCC continue to make Revised Article 9 a hot topic in firms across the country," said Dennis Howarth, NRAI president and chief executive officer. "Our clients have asked for more information concerning how these UCC changes affect current filing and searching practices, so we feel this is a subject worth devoting our resources to. We want to provide value to attorneys and paralegals by giving them access to respected experts in the UCC industry and taking a step beyond the textbook to share real-world examples and advice that we have gathered from our nationwide team of UCC specialists."
In addition to NRAI's in-house UCC specialists, the company has retained attorney Darrell W. Pierce of the law firm Dykema Gossett to assist with developing the program and presenting on various topics.
The program premiered earlier this week with a webinar covering updates to Revised Article 9. This was the first of three webinars in a series focused specifically on Revised Article 9 topics, including searching and filing.
The second component of NRAI's UCC program is a series of regional one-day seminars. These events will consist of morning sessions devoted to Revised Article 9 Searching and Filing as well as afternoon sessions focused on more sophisticated challenges such as Bankruptcy vs. Foreclosure and International UCC Equivalents. The first regional open house will take place in Chicago on Feb. 17 at the Renaissance Hotel.
NRAI has also announced the launch of NRAI OneTouch, its mobile service of process application. NRAI OneTouch enables legal professionals to search and view service of process documents while on the go, providing mobile access to litigation and time-sensitive documents from around the globe. This technology recognizes the advancements in mobile technology and the growing need to deliver critical documents and information to users wherever they may be located.
Customers can now view summary information, delivery confirmations and service of process documents from their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. The application also allows customers to search for service of process by date, company name and transmittal number. This new mobile technology provides critical, real-time litigation and legal data.
