Real Estate Finance & Lending

Our firm has a nationwide financing practice that excels at sophisticated financing structures in all aspects of the origination, modification and restructuring of loans secured by interests in real estate. Our clients include large national banks, institutional investors and lenders, regional banks, conduit lenders, finance and mortgage companies, as well as purchasers, developers and other property investors.  We have assisted clients across the United States with all types of properties, including development on Tribal lands, including office, retail, industrial, multi-family, residential, condominium, mixed-use, hospitality and other commercial properties.   

Our team assists clients with structuring, negotiating and documenting acquisition and development loans, construction loans, permanent loans and other creative loan structures relating to single-asset and portfolio loan transactions.  We help our clients by conducting due diligence and perfecting liens and security interests in collateral, and counsel clients on loan participations, syndications and intercreditor agreements in multi-lender transactions. 

In addition to negotiating loan documentation and satisfying lender requirements, our attorneys structure and negotiate joint ventures and other real estate investment entities to meet the legal and business needs of our borrower clients.  And both lenders and borrowers value our advice on resolving problems including defaults, workouts, repossession, foreclosure and receivership.
