Our finance team represents financial institutions including, national, international, state and regional banks, non-bank lenders, multi-national corporations, and emerging entrepreneurial businesses, all who either provide or benefit from access to credit. We advise our financial institution clients as lenders, issuers, underwriters, credit enhancers and servicers, and have a proven ability to handle complex, innovative transactions, as well as the routine transaction where controlling costs is essential. On the borrower side, we assist clients in all sectors including retailers, distributors, technology companies, health care providers, manufacturers and hospitality service companies, and we have exceptional depth and experience in helping energy industry clients.
As advisors on financing transactions, our lawyers document and negotiate large multi-bank syndicated transactions, smaller multi-bank club deals, and single bank loans in all segments of the market including corporate lending, commercial lending, asset-based lending, reserve-based lending, letters of credit facilities, leasing transactions, structured finance, project finance, DIP financing, real estate finance, mezzanine and other subordinated debt financing, and all other areas of finance transactions.
We advise on aspects of due diligence to evaluate risks and to balance business, operational and legal needs. Our lawyers have a solid reputation for closing deals, and are supported by the firm's full resources in tax, securities, employee benefits, real estate, environmental and corporate law.
While each lender has its own transactional processes and procedures, our work with a multitude of lenders enables us to suggest customized terms and provisions that benefit the lender and the borrower, as well as to build in safeguards that both protect the lender's collateral and make it easier to access the collateral in the event of a default, foreclosure or bankruptcy. Should workout or restructuring become necessary, our deep litigation and bankruptcy teams have substantial experience in representing the needs of both creditors and debtors.
Our lawyers are adept at addressing complex subordination and inter-creditor issues and represent creditors at all levels of the capital structure. We also work regularly with business combinations and transactions that require special financing, including joint ventures, product and technology licensing, distributorship arrangements, leveraged leasing and synthetic leasing. In addition, we are actively involved in all aspects of real estate finance, including traditional mortgages, development and construction loans, and commercial property acquisitions.
