Real Estate Finance

We represent both borrowers and lenders in obtaining and extending capital that is vital to the success of many real estate projects, including portfolio loans from local lenders to more sophisticated loans obtained through commercial mortgage back securities (CMBS) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs. We frequently provide legal opinions required by lenders to close on real estate loans.

In addition, we assist with loan workouts related to bank-owned properties and distressed real property secured loans. We work with lenders, investors, tenants, property managers, and receivers to unwind, restructure, refinance, or reclaim property through foreclosure.
