Lending / Distressed Real Estate

We advise a wide variety of institutional lending clients, including large commercial banks, real estate investment trusts and nationally recognized real estate debt and distressed debt fund managers.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in all aspects of commercial lending, including loans intended for securitization, syndicated loan transactions, senior/subordinate (A/B) co-lending arrangements, mezzanine debt, preferred equity financing, sale and purchase of commercial loan interest, construction loans, corporate lines of credit and credit tenant loans involving virtually every type of commercial real estate collateral.

Our real estate, bankruptcy and litigation groups also have experience in real estate workouts and enforcement proceedings, including mortgage foreclosures, mezzanine loan “UCC sales,” the prosecution of guaranty claims and bankruptcies. Our experience in this area ranges from the representation of secured and unsecured creditors in multibillion-dollar bankruptcy cases to the representation of individual mortgage and mezzanine lenders.
