Veros Platforms Named on UCDP Vendor List; Ready to Support Industry

(Vocus/PRWEB) April 15, 2011

Veros Real Estate Solutions (Veros), an industry leader in enterprise risk management and collateral valuation services, has announced that its VeroSELECT and Valuation Risk Management (VRM) platforms are fully functional and ready to help lenders in all aspects of ordering, managing and delivering appraisals through the Uniform Collateral Data Portal (UCDP). Additionally, they will accept and process appraisals compliant with the Uniform Appraisal Dataset (UAD). These initiatives are part of the GSEs Uniform Mortgage Data Program (UMDP), a strategy to standardize and drive data quality to benefit the entire mortgage industry.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (GSEs) announced Wednesday that UCDP will be live on June 27, 2011. According to the GSEs, appraisal report forms for all conventional mortgage loans delivered on or after March 19, 2012, must be submitted to the UCDP before the delivery date of the mortgage if the loan application is dated on or after Dec. 1, 2011 and an appraisal report is required. Veros and its related platforms have been named as approved solutions that enable the submission of electronic appraisal data to UCDP.

The key to a good experience with UCDP is for lenders to get on board early and not wait until March 2012 to begin utilizing the program, said Chris Gowen, sales vice president at Veros. There is significant pre-work that needs to be accomplished in order to meet all GSE requirements. Having access to the system now provides opportunity for the necessary internal testing and process changes lenders need to work through to ensure smoothly running operations and on-time compliance with this mandate.

VeroSELECT and VRM have been finely tuned and are ready to help lenders quickly and efficiently navigate UCDP for a successful outcome. These platforms were built to provide precise functionality in valuation risk management, as well as manage the entire collateral valuation process from start to finish.

Participants will be able to utilize UCDP through a web-based portal to upload and browse files, or they can connect via a vendor provided solution, such as VeroSELECT and VRM. According to Gowen, vendor integration is a smart option for lenders and their designated agents concerned about loan volume and looking to automate their processes, as well as for lenders looking to add risk management capabilities to their workflow through the addition of analytics or automated reviews.

The GSEs will provide job aids, training programs and other resources to help lenders learn the system over the next few weeks. These tools can be accessed directly from the GSEs respective websites.

Veros is a significant provider of property valuation analytics, including automated valuation models (AVMs), automated fraud and risk analytics, as well as future value forecasting for the real estate and mortgage industry. Veros is also a leading provider of automated valuation and risk management solutions offering platforms managing the entire spectrum of collateral valuation products while simultaneously monitoring workflow for compliance.

Veros was selected in 2010 by the GSEs as the technology provider to build, support and maintain the UCDP platform, which provides the electronic appraisal data delivery to the organizations.

Litigation Boutique Reilly Pozner on The National Law Journals Inaugural Litigation Boutiques Hot List

Denver (PRWEB) February 17, 2012

The litigation boutique Reilly Pozner has been selected to The National Law Journals inaugural Litigation Boutiques Hot List, an exclusive group of 10 firms in the country that take second place to no one in courtroom skill.

Reilly Pozner is one of those firms important clients turn to for state-of-the-art advocacy in bet-the-company cases, the Journal reported. They also represent an avenue to practice high-end law on a more human scale than perhaps is offered by larger firms.

With just under 30 lawyers, Reilly Pozner has roughly tripled in size since it was established it in 2000. Many of its lawyers are younger than 40 years old. All of its lawyers, except former state appellate court judge and partner Sean Connelly, are based in Denver. Connelly heads the firm’s Washington office which opened last year. While an assistant United States attorney, Connelly was the lead appellate lawyer in the Oklahoma City bombing prosecutions. In all, the firm has served as lead counsel in more than 40 states.

In an interview with the Journal, co-founding partner Dan Reilly discussed prominent cases in which the firm has recently been involved, one of which many believe will wind up before the Colorado Supreme Court. He also talked about the firms mantra which devolves from the firms unique logo, a gargoyle. The mantra flowing from the medieval guardian is Protect and Prevail. However, co-founding partner Reilly points out the firms bold choice for branding itself hardly reflects a traditional approach to practice.
