Appropriate financing is critical to the success of any commercial real estate project. When representing a borrower, the firm's Real Estate Law Group takes particular care to see that the structure of the transaction is appropriate and the documentation is fair in light of the particular needs and desires of the client. If the project runs into trouble, we use this same approach to develop an acceptable loan modification.
We also represent financial institutions making commercial loans. The Real Estate Law Group assists lenders in assessing potential transactions and associated risks, and in structuring and documentation loans. We pay close attention to the type and quality of collateral involved to make sure that the lender's interests are protected and that any issues related to the collateral are addressed. Not all projects are successful, however, and we assist lenders in restructuring of loans that become necessary. We anticipate and deal with potential insolvency and bankruptcy issues and we help design satisfactory modifications to return troubled loans to performing status.
