Our Commercial Loan Servicing Team assists clients throughout the lifecycle of a real estate loan. We advise clients on loan servicing and administration matters, including loan assumptions; modifications, releases, and defeasances; workout, restructuring, and enforcement matters; and REO transactions.
With offices throughout the United States, including key Eastern and Western locations, we understand each area’s regional issues, local laws, political climate, and distinct market characteristics. That perspective, combined with our vast experience in real estate, finance, taxation, litigation, receivership matters, and bankruptcy, gives us the skills and insight needed to help clients in all facets of loan servicing and administration.
Since 2008, we have been a leader in representing special servicers in all aspects of distressed CMBS loans, including restructuring, enforcement, and foreclosure matters. Our interdisciplinary team includes tax lawyers with extensive experience in REMIC-related tax issues arising from loan modifications and enforcement actions, including issues associated with A/B loan splits. We have negotiated and closed numerous sales and acquisitions of non-performing loans, including mezzanine loans, senior loans, and complex loan portfolios. We also advise master and special servicers on pooling and servicing agreements as well as intercreditor agreements.
Our clients include:
- Master and special servicers
- Portfolio, agency, and conduit lenders
- Life insurance companies
- Other financial institutions
Our Commercial Loan Servicing Team is part of our Real Estate Finance and Capital Markets Group, which advises clients in the structuring, documenting, servicing, and restructuring of real estate debt and equity transactions.
