2019 was a busy year in New Jersey, with nine new statutes enacted that impact mortgage foreclosure. In addition to these statutes, the Legislature and the Courts are heavily promoting borrowers’ entry into the Court’s sponsored Mediation Program.
Further, the Courts and the Office of Foreclosure introduced a new wrinkle in the Mediation Program in that once a borrower accepts a trial loan modification, the Court will close the case. In a measured effort to remove matters from the Docket, the Court takes the position the case will be considered “settled” upon the borrower’s acceptance of an offer of a trial loan modification.

As we turn the page on 2019 and embark on a new decade, debtors’ attorneys will be armed with new tools in their “bankruptcy tool belts.” Effective February 19, 2020, the provisions of the Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 (“SBRA”)—known colloquially as Subchapter V of Chapter 11—go into effect. Subchapter V adopted to create streamlined procedures for the Bankruptcy Court, potentially resulting in reduced costs (and related benefits) for individual small business debtors—with an emphasis on debtors under the Subchapter being able to file consensual plans of reorganization.
LOGS Network, the nation’s largest commonly-owned multi-state network of creditors’ rights law firms, today announced that phase two of the Network’s rebrand project has been completed. Phase one, the rebrand of the core LOGS Network national brand was revealed earlier this year during the MBA’s National Mortgage Servicing Conference held in late February in Orlando, Florida. Phase two includes entirely new microsites for each of LOGS’ network-affiliated law firms, a total of 20 commonly-owned law firms servicing over 30 states, all backed by common ownership, technology, compliance, and national operational support.
“This is the most comprehensive branding we’ve ever had in LOGS’ four decades of service to the industry. We are proud to showcase our footprint of over 30 states and depth of experience that spans more than 40 years. Today, it’s easier than ever to see why LOGS is the premier choice for mortgage servicers, investors, and other financial institutions,” said Kay Schinker, Chief Operating Officer of LOGS National.
Included in phase two, along with the microsites for each LOGS firm, is a foreclosure sales portal that includes thirteen states, one of the industry’s most comprehensive resources for real-time foreclosure sales information. Both pending and held sales are available for the majority of states participating in the portal.
The rebrand project for LOGS Network has been in partnership with SQFT Management, a boutique Washington, D.C.-based marketing and design firm primarily focused on the financial services, real estate, and legal industries.

Now, that link is the cornerstone of our brand identity.

LOGS has always prioritized a client-centric approach, and connection and communication continue to be a priority. Our new branding combines those traditional values with a modernized approach to encourage clients to interact and engage with us from our BLOG posts and LinkedIn account and view some of our newly "branded" offerings. We have retained and refreshed the client-centric services we've been providing for years, and made them easily accessible. Onsite trainings are now available through LOGON; and our client communications, are a click away through DIALOG.
We've been your go-to resource since 1971. We're proud of our legacy and pleased to bring a refreshed look and feel to our comprehensive client experience. Thank you for making the last forty years an exceptional run, and we're excited about the next forty.
