Banking & Finance

Higier Allen & Lautin’s banking and finance group is a multidisciplinary practice group whose members are involved in the full spectrum of financing transactions and regularly counsel our bank clients on all aspects of banking business. The firm represents numerous commercial banks and non-bank lenders.

Our banking and finance attorneys routinely handle single-lender, participated and syndicated loan transactions of all types. We are equally comfortable with asset-based lending on personal property transactions and with real estate lending in all phases of development. Our attorneys are experienced in a wide variety of banking and lending matters, including:

  • Asset-based and collateralized financing
  • Mezzanine and other subordinate debt structuring
  • Loan restructuring and workouts
  • Syndicated and multiple creditor financing
  • Factoring
  • UCC and real estate foreclosures
  • Collections
  • Mortgage warehousing transactions
  • Regulatory compliance

Our attorneys also assist clients in loan workouts and restructuring loans, pursuing collection actions on defaulted loans, defending lender liability claims, and representing our banks as secured or unsecured creditors in bankruptcy actions.
