Meyers Roman’s Finance attorneys provide a breadth of legal representation in structuring, negotiating and documenting all aspects of commercial, real estate and asset-based loan transactions. We provide practical yet creative approaches to handling all aspects of financing and capital structuring for banks and other financial institutions, as well as private lenders and borrowers across a broad spectrum of industries.

Our attorneys rely on decades of experience to provide customized solutions to help each client reach their end goal. We also strive to be a value-added asset to our clients by continually monitoring and communicating the myriad of ever-changing, complex regulatory issues and by facilitating relationships among our clients and network of experienced professionals. We offer sophisticated, yet cost-effective solutions for real estate and constructions loans, including commercial mortgage loans, construction loans, bridge loans, mezzanine loans, preferred equity investments, private placements, syndications and participations. We counsel clients on government loans, such as HUD insured loans and HUD Transfers of Physical Assets (TPA), SBA, HUD, FHA, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and other regulatory financing.

When appropriate, our attorneys coordinate with our Tax group to provide experienced counsel on complex transactions with historic tax credits and low-income housing tax credits. Our attorneys also work closely with our Creditors’ Rights and Bankruptcy group to put clients in the best possible position to mitigate losses. They also assist with loan workouts, forbearance arrangements, loan restructuring, mezzanine and subordinated debt, foreclosures and the sale of distressed loans and assets.
