Jason Nagi charts a path to victory for each of his clients. He focuses his practice on representing both traditional and non-traditional lenders in state, federal, and bankruptcy courts and pre-litigation workouts. He represents securitized lenders, special servicers, banks, and private lenders in enforcing distressed commercial loans, conducting sales via the Uniform Commercial Code, fraudulent transfer actions, and through every stage of insolvency proceedings.

Jason has represented large international corporations, insurance companies, financial institutions, and individual businesses in the federal and state courts in New York. He has substantial experience representing litigants involved in:
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Fraud claims
  • Construction litigation
  • Declaratory relief sought against financial institutions
  • Post-award arbitration confirmation and enforcement proceedings
  • Forged indorsements and other check-related litigation implicated by articles 3 and 4 of New York’s Uniform Commercial Code
  • Anti-money laundering investigations of financial institutions brought by various enforcement bodies.
In addition to his experience in Single Asset Real Estate bankruptcy cases, Jason has represented agent banks and majority lenders for syndicated loans, in out-of-court workouts, and both contested and consensual court supervised restructurings.

Jason applies his considerable finance-related, creditor-focused experience to the FinTech lender space, and focuses on unique insolvency issues that apply to new technologies developed by the FinTech industry, such as the block chain. He uses his prior regulatory and compliance experience to help shape the emerging regulatory framework applicable to FinTech companies.
