Banking & Finance

Our firm provides legal advice and representation to consumer and commercial banks, with a particular emphasis on community and regional banks, asset based lenders, finance companies, distressed loan funds, and other lenders in a wide variety of transactions.

Our attorneys assist clients in various loan and financing transactions including permanent, bridge, mezzanine, or other loans or financing; consumer, commercial, real estate, construction, or purchase money loans; aviation, rolling stock, letters of credit, and other asset financing; project financing; and distressed company refinance or operating loans. In addition, we advise our clients in developing strategies to handle non-performing loans and other distressed transactions. We are particularly skilled in workouts, with significant involvement in negotiating and implementing reorganization plans for troubled financing projects.

To that end, our litigation attorneys also provide assistance to lenders and other creditors seeking collect debts owed to them, or to protect or recover collateral, foreclose on personal or real property, or otherwise enforce liens and security interests against secured property, including creditor representation in bankruptcy. We also provide counsel and representation to borrowers, investors, guarantors, and other business and individuals who obtain loans and financing.
