Banking and Finance
Commercial lending and financing transactions can be quite complex for many individuals. The attorneys in our commercial services practice have extensive experience in representing both lenders and borrowers in commercial lending transactions.
The commitment letter or term sheet for a commercial loan should be carefully reviewed and negotiated for all transactions. A commitment letter is a binding agreement between the parties and provides a roadmap for the transaction. Therefore, it is one of the most important loan documents and should contain all of the terms and conditions of the transaction.
Our talented team of attorneys are available to aid in the preparation and review of other loan documents required for a loan transaction. This includes loan agreements, promissory notes, guaranties, deeds of trust, assignments of leases, security agreements, pledge agreements, subordination agreements, borrowing resolutions and the like. An attorney must also frequently arrange for title insurance, surveys, environmental reports, and certificates of public officials pertaining to the good standing or existence of the borrower or a guarantor in order to satisfy a lender’s requirements. In larger transactions, an opinion of the borrower’s counsel may also be required. We have significant experience in advising lenders in the area of secured transactions and the perfection of security interests in all different types of collateral.
