Commercial Lending Services


We are on the approved list of lenders' counsel for several financial institutions. We also act for a number of mezzanine and equity lenders. We are the choice of borrowers and lenders seeking knowledgeable lawyers who can address problems and find practical solutions. Our familiarity with these lenders and their requirements enables us to guide clients smoothly through the financing process, including the selection of the right lenders. Our expertise in financing transactions includes:

  • term loans
  • financing for income-producing properties
  • construction financing for all forms of real estate development
  • structuring and securitizing loans ensuring reasonable and adequate protection for lenders
  • structuring non-conventional financing vehicles such as participating mortgages and limited partnerships
  • arranging for syndication and servicing of large loans to other lenders

Loan Recovery

We are often sought out to prosecute or defend high-profile cases on behalf of institutional lenders. We have an excellent track record of bringing loan enforcement cases to speedy and successful conclusions. Working with our Litigation Group, we:

  • vet existing security to evaluate enforceability
  • restructure and renegotiate loans to enhance collectability
  • enforce all forms of real and personal property security through private action, insolvency or receivership proceedings
  • assist borrowers in renegotiating difficult loans
