The cases considered below are a reminder of the risk that payments secured under a letter of credit may be set aside as an unfair preference in certain circumstances. Direct pay letters of credit have been used to mitigate this risk but recent case law suggests that payments under these may be open to attack. Partner Phillip Cornwell and Lawyer Maya Greenberg report. Lenders who take security by way of a letter of credit from a borrower should be aware that, if the debtor is wound up in insolvency, payments made to the lender, whether by the borrower or by the bank under the letter of credit, may be liable to be set aside as an ... market research, surveys and trends
