Commercial Finance

Developing Flexible Solutions for Today’s Deals

As lenders and borrowers face higher underwriting standards, it is becoming increasingly difficult to close the deal. Clients need legal counsel that can quickly navigate new requirements and develop flexible strategies to advance their goals.  

Our Commercial Finance Group represents a diverse range of lenders and borrowers in complex commercial and real estate finance transactions. We guide our clients in structuring, negotiating, documenting and closing a wide range of financing transactions and credit facilities for banks, asset-based lenders, finance companies and factors.

Our clients include banks and other financial institutions, hedge funds and domestic and international businesses. Because we represent both lenders and borrowers, we understand the competing priorities among all parties to any given transaction. Our multifaceted experience proves invaluable in negotiating and crafting the most beneficial terms and establishing a cooperative environment to creatively resolve issues.

Lending Transactions
We advise clients on the negotiation, structuring and documentation of traditional and complex bank loans including lines of credit, term loans, revolving loans, construction loans, mezzanine loans, letters of credit and syndicated loan transactions. We also represent banks and investors in their purchases of whole loans and co-lending interests. In coordination with our network of international law firms, we are frequently engaged in cross-border financing transactions.

Restructuring and Bankruptcy
Working closely with our Bankruptcy and Corporate Restructuring Group, we advise clients on restructuring secured commercial finance transactions, foreclosures, restructuring, enforcing creditor’s rights and remedies, purchasing and selling distressed loans and real estate, negotiating workout and forbearance agreements and identifying/correcting title issues related to foreclosures and collateral.

Our full-service practice enables us to draw upon the skills of our Bankruptcy and Corporate Reorganization, Real Estate, Construction, Litigation, Tax and Trusts & Estates Groups, among others, enabling us to achieve our clients’ goals in an efficient manner.
