Financing is critical to any real estate project, both at the time of its acquisition as well as throughout the life of the investment. We regularly assist clients negotiating and structuring financial arrangements with and on behalf of institutional and non-institutional lenders, as well as sources of private equity. And because we know your financing needs change with time, we assist its clients in refinancing, defeasing, restructuring, workouts and foreclosures. We are also very familiar with the special requirements imposed on borrowers by conduit lenders to meet special purpose entity requirements, and regularly render the highly technical due authorization, enforceability and non-consolidation legal opinions demanded by conduit lenders.
