Lenders and Borrowers

We protect lenders by writing clear loan documents and enforcing them under applicable law in state, federal, and bankruptcy courts.  We protect borrowers by negotiating pro-borrower loan terms and creating effective solutions when the borrower needs relief. 

Our lawyers handle a broad range of matters, including documenting and negotiating secured and unsecured loans, loan purchases/sales, loan modifications and similar contracts, in addition to litigation matters, such as collection lawsuits in state and federal court, and bankruptcy matters.
