As counsel to lenders, we represent a variety of banks, investment groups, large institutional lenders, high net worth individuals and other commercial lending institutions, including providing regulatory and corporate advice, litigation, and negotiating and documenting transactional matters.
We are experienced in creating, ensuring, and analyzing perfection in all types of collateral, including real estate, inventory and equipment, accounts receivable and securities and partnership interests. We assist commercial lenders in secured and unsecured borrowing arrangements. We are experienced with participation lending and the issues which this can present in management of loans. We represent lenders in bankruptcy and receivership proceedings. We also represent lenders in the administration of their claims in estate matters. We work on the repossession of collateral, asset investigation and retrieval including investigations across state lines.
We have offices in Seattle and Portland. Our lending law practice includes lawyers and affiliated law firms licensed to practice (and actively practicing) in WA, OR, ID, NV, MT, AK, CO, TX, MO and AZ. Our lawyers deal regularly with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and the FDIC as well as state regulatory authorities.
Our attorneys are experienced with financings of all types and stages, including secured and unsecured working capital lines of credit, and asset based and real estate loans. Our attorneys have an understanding of lender liability issues which often arise in the loan documentation process (e.g. TILA & HOEPA).
We pride ourselves on long term client relationships and customer care. Even in these times of changing economic conditions we have maintained a high level of customer loyalty and are actively expanding our practice.
