Financial institutions, life insurance companies and other lenders can trust our commercial banking and finance lawyers for solid, practical legal representation in the negotiation, structuring and documentation of commercial lending transactions, including commercial real estate loans and mezzanine financing, acquisition financing, syndicated commercial loans, and asset-based lending.
