For over 30 years we have represented regional and national banks and other financial institutions. With expertise developed from years of documenting commercial transactions, as well as representing lenders in resolving loan, credit facility, non-payment, and insolvency matters, our commercial finance team is capable of representing lenders in a broad range of transactional and commercial matters.


We represent lenders and borrowers in a wide variety of financing transactions, ranging from simple loans to credit facilities, bridge loans, and secured asset lending.

We represent lenders in drafting and negotiating loan, credit facility, and other agreements (including security terms), advising on terms and conditions, filing security interests, conducting any required legal due diligence.  In addition to representing banks, we also represent private lenders through fund creation for private lending purposes.
