Cohen and Wolf’s Commercial Lending Practice Group provides responsive and cost-effective legal counsel to institutional lenders and borrowers in secured and unsecured credit facilities, asset-based financing transactions, commercial real estate lending, acquisition financing and other lending transactions.
Attorneys in our Commercial Lending Practice Group work closely with our Real Estate and Business & Corporate Practice Groups, offering a long and distinguished record of providing exceptional services to a broad range of institutional and private lenders and borrowers. Our lending clients include state and national banks, federal savings banks, bank holding companies, and community banks, and our borrower clients include individuals and closely held companies, as well as regulated or highly specialized borrowers, such as those involved in mortgage banking, health care, auto leasing, and alternative energy financings.
We have substantial experience representing lenders and borrowers in all forms of commercial and real estate financing transactions, from standard working capital, revolving credit, term loan, equipment leasing and mortgage financings, to complex matters involving construction projects, multi-state deals, securitizations, structured finance, syndicated and mezzanine financings. We regularly handle asset-based lines of credit and term loans secured by accounts, inventory, marketable securities, and other kinds of personal property. Our representation of real estate lenders and borrowers includes acquisition and development loans, construction, permanent, and leasehold loans, and letter of credit facilities, secured by mortgages on various types of properties, such as shopping centers, office buildings and condominiums, retail centers, industrial facilities, apartment buildings, multi-family developments, and health care facilities.
Our Commercial Lending Practice Group also represents secured creditors in workouts and restructurings of defaulted and distressed loans, and draws upon the resources of the firm’s Litigation and Bankruptcy practice groups to strengthen and protect secured positions, mitigate losses, and provide efficient and creative solutions to matters involving troubled debt.
