Materials Available | Practice Foundations: PPSA

LESA’s Practice Foundations series continues with materials from our January 2023 webinar, “PPSA: What Lawyers Need to Know”. It is important that commercial solicitors and litigators understand the operation of the Personal Property Security Act (PPSA) to fully advise their clients. While the pre-PPSA regime was highly technical and emphasized form and technicalities, the PPSA seeks to have a broader application by focusing on function as opposed to form. This on-demand program addresses key topics of personal property security law, including:

  • The requirements of a true security interest
  • Transactions that are excluded from the scope of the PPSA
  • Conflict of laws
  • Security Agreements
  • Perfection and special perfection rules
  • Common issues that may arise when registering security interests

Thank you to Michael J. Morcom, partner at Miller Thompson LLP for his time and expertise in presenting this program and preparing the materials.
