Banking & Financial Services
The Firm has extensive experience in all areas of commercial lending including commercial finance, asset-based lending and real estate finance. We address the needs of commercial banking institutions and other lenders in documenting and closing sophisticated lending transactions including credit facilities for specific areas such as computer and technology, vendor finance, automobile dealers and health care.
Our attorneys have also represented lenders in financings for the acquisition of gaming equipment, dredges, scows, drilling rigs and underwater exploration equipment, as well as in the preparation and negotiation of related bare boat charter agreements, preferred ship mortgages and documents to collateralize receivables from the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
We assist chartered financial institutions and handle all aspects of the organization of de novo commercial banks, from application to completed public offering, to obtaining branch approvals. The Firm also serves as general counsel to commercial banks and counsels them with respect to matters involving federal and state regulatory issues before the Federal Reserve Board, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance, New York Department of Banking and the Pennsylvania Department of Banking.
In addition, the Firm advises lenders in negotiating and restructuring the workout of troubled loans.
We provide a broad range of services to clients requiring guidance on industrial and commercial real estate transactions and land-use issues. We also assist lending institutions, corporations, developers, property operators, and owners in purchasing, selling, developing, leasing and financing real property. In that capacity, we draw on our considerable experience in commercial real estate, construction financing and contracting, environmental compliance, municipal land use, and tax appeals.
