The membership of ACFA consists of attorneys in private practice and with corporations whose areas of practice emphasize matters of factoring, asset-based lending, bankruptcy and creditor problems in general. We presently have more than three hundred fifty active members, representing more than twenty states and two foreign countries. It is fair to say that the clients of our members include most, if not all, major banks, commercial finance companies and factors.
ACFA usually has four or five regular monthly meetings from September to May. Each of these business meetings is held at a convenient location in New York City and begins at 4:45 p.m. with a reception, followed at 5:45 p.m. by a panel discussion of a topic of interest to our membership.
ACFA has an annual dinner in November as well as a very successful and well-attended four-day continuing legal education weekend (CLEW) in May.
ACFA annually publishes and distributes, free to members, a directory including the name, business address and business telephone number of each member.
The Association of Commercial Finance Attorneys furthers the practice of law applicable to commercial finance, including but not limited to asset-based lending, factoring, loan restructuring and insolvency. ACFA pursues this goal in an atmosphere of collegiality and mutual respect through monthly educational programs and an annual continuing education weekend covering topics related to commercial finance, insolvency and ethics.
ACFA’s membership is committed to the practice of commercial law in accordance with the highest ethical and professional standards. ACFA members actively participate in the drafting, modification, reform, and interpretation of commercial and insolvency law. Many ACFA members are recognized experts in their fields of practice and often lead the organization’s educational programs.
