Mortgage loans and other financing

Mortgages and sale/leasebacks
Preparing for a traditional financing transaction requires tailored solutions appropriate to the opportunity and the particular client's interests. Our real estate attorneys represent clients on all ends of the deal, including developers, borrowers, banks, insurance companies and conduit lenders. Our practical experience ensures a custom, efficient solution for financing transactions, including construction and permanent loans, multi-property and multi-state transactions, as well as sale/leaseback transactions.

Securitized lending
In addition to representing lenders and borrowers in traditional real estate financings, our attorneys represent regional and national lenders who make securitized loans in the commercial mortgage backed securities market. This rapidly expanding source of funds provides unique opportunities for our borrowing clients to leverage their real estate portfolios.

Tax exempt bonds and taxable note financings
Our attorneys represent issuing authorities, letter of credit banks, underwriters, trustees and borrowers in tax-exempt industrial revenue bond financings, health care bond financings and multifamily housing bond financings, as well as in taxable, multi-option adjustable rate note financings. With our considerable experience, we are able to advise our clients and efficiently complete negotiation, documentation and closing of these transactions.

Mezzanine financing
Our attorneys represent lenders and borrowers in mezzanine financings. Our services in this area include negotiation of loan terms and preparation of all relevant documents. We also facilitate pledges of beneficial interests in project entities, key principal guaranties, indemnities and intercreditor agreements with first mortgage lenders.
