The Shechtman Halperin Savage Commercial Lending Practice Group, having represented lenders and borrowers throughout all phases of the transaction process, is experienced in documenting, negotiating, and closing real estate and other asset-based forms of commercial lending transactions, including U.S. Small Business Administration-guaranteed loans. Our clients range from small “hard money” lenders to regional institutions to some of the largest lenders in the country. We capably serve the transactional needs of our clients, whether for a basic $150,000 mortgage loan or a complex, multi-million dollar, formula-based line of credit.
Lenders can expect experienced representation, with a focus on both ensuring the structure of the transaction and building and strengthening the relationship between the lender and its borrower. Through meticulous review, we ensure that all documents involved in a transaction are properly drafted, signed, and that all documentation required to collateralize the transaction as intended by the parties is accurate, complete, and filed or recorded as necessary. Because we understand the lender’s goal of establishing a long term relationship with its borrower, we provide a level of superior professionalism in all of our interactions and we endeavor to predict and address potential issues before they arise.
Our Commercial Lending Practice Group is also experienced in representing borrowers in various commercial lending transactions. Our experience in representing lenders gives us valuable insight into the loan documents, which in turn provides a distinct advantage in negotiating the documents on behalf of our borrower clients.
Although every commercial lending transaction will have similarities with other transactions of its kind, we at SHS understand that each lender and each borrower has different priorities, concerns, and time constraints. Our Commercial Lending Practice Group prides itself on responding with flexibility to the needs of our various clients, and “getting the deal done” with efficiency and individualized care. We recognize and understand time constraints, and as such, we make ourselves available to conduct loan closings before or after normal working hours and at alternate locations such as the borrower’s counsel’s office, the registries of deeds, the lender’s branch locations, or any other appropriate location convenient to the parties.
