We work directly with lenders and borrowers in loan transactions on the local, regional, and national levels. We understand the nuances involved in structuring, negotiating, and documenting all aspects of a complex commercial loan. These include asset-based and nonfollowed secured lending, all forms of real estate financing, including securitized lending transactions, lines of credit, unsecured loans, portfolio loans, syndicated facilities, and loan participations. We are experienced in transactions of all sizes, and focus on the $1 million to $200 million range.  

We have extensive experience in representing lenders and borrowers, and our team brings a unique understanding to each transaction and relationship throughout the industry. This understanding allows us to devote our time to the most significant issues, enhancing efficiency and strengthening relationships while reducing expenses for our clients. Our leadership and efficiency allows us to find the opportunities our clients need to grow.

We are skilled in negotiating workout and reorganization agreements, handling direct enforcement and collection matters, representing creditors, official committees, debtors, trustees and other parties in bankruptcy proceedings, and counseling clients in nonbankruptcy alternatives. Our litigators have a wealth of experience in bankruptcy, workout, and general commercial litigation, and we have the appropriate resources to employ in particularly complex and difficult situations.
