Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that Nashville partner Emily Hatch Bowman has been elected as a Fellow in the American College of Mortgage Attorneys (ACMA).
“We congratulate Emily on this well-deserved accolade that distinguishes her in the mortgage lending sector,” said Firm Chairman Beau Grenier. “This is one of the highest honors a lawyer can receive, in no small part because the selection process is handled by peers who are considered to be among the best in this area of law.”
ACMA Fellows have distinguished themselves as practitioners in the field of real estate mortgages through their bar association activities, lecturing, authoring articles and program materials, participation in the legislative process, and writing briefs and arguing cases that are significant to mortgage transactions. ACMA Fellows share a commitment to giving back to their industry, improving and reforming laws and procedures affecting real estate secured transactions, and raising the level of professional responsibility of lawyers practicing in this area.
Ms. Bowman represents financial institutions, including banks and insurance companies, and corporate clients in a variety of commercial and real estate lending and other real estate transactional matters. She also regularly issues legal opinions in connection with multistate projects and as local counsel for transactions originated outside of Tennessee secured by real property located within the state. Her commercial and real estate lending practice includes representation of lenders and borrowers in negotiating, structuring and documenting construction, and permanent financing of restaurants, shopping centers, office buildings, and multifamily residential projects, as well as working capital and general corporate loans. Ms. Bowman also regularly advises financial institutions dealing with problem loans, documenting workouts and assumptions, pursuing collections, and conducting foreclosure sales.
Ms. Bowman earned her J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School. She also has a B.S., summa cum laude, from the University of Tennessee.
