Faegre & Benson partner D. Charles Macdonald has been named a fellow in the American College of Mortgage Attorneys. He joins a select group of 10 Minnesota lawyers who have received this honor. Membership in the college is by invitation only.
Macdonald represents lenders in connection with workouts and foreclosures of loans secured by real estate. When the pursuit of remedies must commence, he pursues foreclosures, appointments of receivers and the collection of deficiencies from guarantors.
He also advises clients on landlord–tenant disputes and litigates quiet title and adverse possession actions. Macdonald represents lenders in disputes concerning mortgage priorities and title insurance claims—and both buyers and sellers in litigation over purchase agreements and contracts for deed.
Formed in 1974, the American College of Mortgage Attorneys consists of fellows from each state who are highly skilled in the preparation of real estate mortgages, lending transactions secured by real estate and related practices, including the enforcement of mortgage remedies. The college seeks to improve and reform laws and procedures affecting real estate secured transactions and to raise the level of professional responsibility of lawyers practicing in this area.
