Commercial & Real Estate Finance Transactions

Our attorneys are leaders in providing commercial lending expertise to top tier financial institutions and borrowers. We combine years of hands on deal experience with litigation experience in order to distinguish between negotiation points that are important and points that are irrelevant. Our attorneys and staff take a proactive approach to managing each matter. This approach includes (i) listening and understanding our client’s needs with respect to the transaction; (ii) early and prompt preparation of documents; (iii) priority ordering of due diligence documents which could take time largely out of our control and cause delay; and (iv) early and prompt circulation of checklists, as well as frequent review of progress on those checklists with our clients and the attorneys for the other parties to the transactions. We similarly perform due diligence matters such as, review of leases, pending contracts, borrower’s organization documents, etc. as early as possible in each transaction so that issues which may surface as a result of such review can be dealt with in the normal course of the matter.
