Finance & Banking

The world of finance and banking has never been more complicated. Enhanced regulation, increased oversight and tough lending standards have made it more difficult than ever for lenders and borrowers alike.

Our banking clients are national and international banking institutions, including Bank of America and Wells Fargo Bank, as well as regional banks, including Citizens Business Bank. Our borrower clients come from a wide variety of industries, such as manufacturing, logistics agri-business, energy, health care, real estate and many others.
 
Comprehensive Service
We advise and represent both lenders and borrowers in secured and unsecured loan transactions ranging from small working capital loans to mezzanine and senior financing for business, asset and property acquisitions and operations expansion. Our attorneys are experienced with secured and unsecured term loans, revolving lines of credit and loan facilities, letters of credit and syndicated loan transactions, as well as bond, equity and debt financing, asset-based lending, commercial, corporate, real estate and equipment financings and mixed-collateral financing.
