Client loyalty.
We recognize our clients' goals and work with them to achieve those goals.

Banking

Our banking practice concentrates on transactional debt financings.  Every transaction is different. Every transaction brings different business realities into play.  We are pragmatic problem-solvers who work to bring transactions to a successful close while protecting the interests of our clients.   We regularly act as counsel for lenders, borrowers and other participants in asset-based loan transactions.  

We represent a number of lenders providing financing for acquisitions, construction, recapitalizations and working capital needs. We are involved in the creation and perfection of liens on, and security interests in, various types of collateral, both real and personal.

In addition, we represent banks and financial institutions in a wide-range of contract, employment, bankruptcy and litigation matters.  Our firm represents various banks in commercial and residential foreclosure.
