Our attorneys have a long track record of providing experienced, high-quality, efficient and cost-effective legal services to businesses and commercial lenders. We have the breadth of knowledge and personnel package to partner with our commercial clients in all stages of the business cycle, and we have the financial expertise to close sophisticated lending transactions or ensure the collection of a troubled loan. Whether the matter involves lending, borrowing, restructuring or transacting in the normal course of business, our attorneys will develop business and legal strategies to help the client achieve the most successful outcome.
Our representation of real estate lenders includes construction, interim and permanent financing of office buildings, shopping centers, apartment buildings, and multi-use, single-family, condominium and cooperative developments. We also represent banks and other institutional and private equity lenders in a variety of commercial and industrial financings. When representing borrowers, many major area developers and owners of all types of properties count on our expertise to structure and close their financings.
We represent and advise our lending and financial industry clients in negotiating and documenting loan workouts and restructures in troubled credit situations. We use our vast experience to first review and analyze existing documentation and then to offer creative and viable suggestions as to alternative structures and sources of additional collateral to provide streamlined and innovative solutions. We utilize work out and restructure agreements, amendments to existing documentation, supplemental agreements and forbearance agreements as necessary and rely on our experience to achieve the client’s objectives in the most expeditious and cost effective way. When necessary, we pursue deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure, consensual and nonconsensual foreclosures, and structured and restructured repayment plans. Through our litigation attorneys, we advise and represent our lending clients in bankruptcy proceedings and support our clients in structuring and implementing planned and contested bankruptcy reorganizations and liquidations.
