What do you focus on?
Commercial Finance and Restructuring
I represent banks and other financial institutions in lending and debt-restructuring transactions, with extensive experience in cash-flow loans, ABLs, debtor-in-possession financings, senior and mezzanine facilities, out-of-court workouts and restructurings and real estate transactions. I focus primarily on middle market transactions, but also represent parties in large-cap deals.
Private Equity and Alternative Investments
In addition to work on the lending side, I often represent private equity portfolio companies, investment funds and corporate borrowers in their commercial and acquisition financing and distressed investment matters.
Real Estate and Infrastructure
Clients rely on me for developing and structuring the governing documents for acquisitions, joint ventures and existing operations for traditional commercial real estate deals, low-income housing tax credit developments and energy and other infrastructure projects. In addition to these acquisition and operational matters, I more extensively focus on the financing components for these types of transactions.
