Lender Representation

With a significant portion of our Finance & Financial Institutions Practice dedicated to representing banks and other commercial lenders, we can assist you in a wide variety of national and international financing transactions. For agent banks, we provide counsel in the structuring, negotiation, and documentation of large corporate and middle-market syndicated loan transactions for commercial and industrial borrowers. For banks and other commercial lenders in connection with bilateral commercial lending arrangements, we work with you to add efficiencies to routine transactions and add value to transactions with complex structures, unusual collateral, regulatory issues, and other special features.

In addition to traditional secured and unsecured lending work, we can represent you in connection with other sophisticated financial transactions, including: loan syndications and participations; asset-based loans; real estate finance and new market tax credits; letters of credit; interest rate swaps and other derivative transactions; workouts and bankruptcies; debtor-in-possession (DIP) lending transactions; subscription receivable financing; opportunity fund lending; franchise financing; private placements; sale of commercial paper; employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) loans; and equipment and dealer finance.
