Our Financing Group offers a broad range of legal services to commercial lenders and borrowers, and to private and public companies with respect to debt and equity financings. From finance documentation to regulatory compliance, our attorneys have a practical approach gained from years of experience. We handle transactions efficiently and effectively, routinely resolving the problems inherent in complicated financings under strict time constraints. We document large and complex transactions involving participations, construction financing and sophisticated combinations of debt and equity.

In addition, our attorneys routinely represent commercial banks, other major lending institutions and other institutional and non-institutional lenders in structuring, documenting and negotiating all types of unsecured and secured debt funds, including real estate secured financings. We represent borrowers with loan document review and negotiations.

We represent both private and public companies in a variety of early-stage and late-stage capital-raising transactions, including angel investments through later-stage preferred stock and mezzanine financings.
