Our attorneys have extensive experience negotiating and documenting syndicated, club, and single bank loans involving real property matters on behalf of national and state banks, insurance companies, and other lenders.

Overview

Our involvement in syndicated, club, and single bank real estate-related transactions covers a broad range of both secured and unsecured financing structures. Real estate-related transactions include construction and term loans, A&D loans, and general real estate-based corporate financings such as revolving and term credit facilities, acquisition/leveraged finance loans, synthetic/leveraged lease transactions, sale-leasebacks, construction lending, and conduit loans intended for securitization in states throughout the country. These transactions involve virtually every type of borrower and type of property. The firm also has deep knowledge of mortgage servicing, whole loan trading, mortgage warehouse facilities, and repurchase facilities. 

Additionally, the firm has significant experience in defeasance transactions involving the substitution of collateral for real estate conduit loans in order for lenders to release the real estate from the lien of underlying mortgages. We have a practical and knowledgeable understanding of the qualified government securities required for providing sufficient cash flow to make remaining payments on the loans and the creation of the successor borrower entities required to substitute for borrowers under the original real estate loans. We also provide the required opinions for the completion of successful defeasance transactions.
