Lindsay Cremona is an attorney with Anastasi Jellum, P.A., practicing principally in the areas of:
- Creditors' Rights in Government Guaranteed Loans
- Loan Restructuring, Workouts, and Collections
- Real Estate and Foreclosures
- Creditors' Rights and Bankruptcy
- Litigation: Banking, Business, and Real Estate
Pursuing the rights of lending institutions often leads to borrowers, guarantors, and other parties availing themselves of bankruptcy protection. Lindsay works with our clients to protect and assert their rights in Minnesota bankruptcy courts, including seeking relief from the automatic stay, defending against preference claims, adversary proceedings, and advising our clients how their rights are impacted by Chapter 7, 11, 12, and 13 bankruptcies.
Loan Restructuring, Workouts and Collections.
Lindsay assists clients in working through troubled loans with the intent of avoiding litigation and maximizing recovery. Through the use of various tools such as forbearance agreements, confessions of judgment, deeds in lieu of foreclosure, and voluntary surrender agreements, she helps financial institutions structure repayment plans that satisfy all parties. In the event there is a default of the workout arrangement, she ensures that the collateral recovery process is quick with minimized costs.
Real Estate Foreclosures.
Lindsay helps the firm’s banking clients recover commercial or residential real estate that has been mortgaged as collateral for a loan. Whether the foreclosure proceeds by publication or judicially, she guides the lender from initial property evaluation and the choice of foreclosure method, through the expiration of the redemption process.
Financial Institution and Business Litigation.
Lindsay works to ensure that client’s rights are both asserted and protected in the instance that litigation is needed. She handles money judgment actions, repossessions, receiverships, landlord/tenant disputes, and various other types of banking and business litigation matters.
Real Estate Litigation.
Lindsay represents financial institutions in real estate matters involving residential and commercial real estate. These matters often include resolving title and priority disputes, commencement and foreclosure of mechanic’s and construction liens, landlord/tenant disputes and evictions.
