J. Mark Fisher concentrates his nationwide practice in secured and unsecured lending, business reorganization, lender liability litigation and workouts and creditors' rights.
Mr. Fisher was a leader of bar association activities related to the adoption of Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Article 2A (leasing) and the repeal of UCC Article 6 (bulk sales) in Illinois.
He represented the Illinois Bankers Association as part of the Article 9 Financial Services Coalition to enact revised UCC Article 9 (RA9) in Illinois.
