Our attorneys regularly represent both lenders and borrowers in all aspects of real estate financing transactions, including permanent, bridge, construction, and shared-appreciation loans, CMBS and capital market debt, repurchase and other leveraged finance facilities, and structured finance transactions (including mezzanine, preferred, and participating financing).
We also represent both capital providers, developers and owners of real estate in structuring, documenting and negotiating joint ventures for the development, ownership and operation of real estate, including office buildings, shopping centers, R&D and industrial developments, hotels and resorts, and multifamily projects.
We have represented lenders, including Wells Fargo Bank, US Bank and Citibank, in multiple financing transactions, including complex multistate loans. We represent Metropolitan Life Insurance Company and UBS Global Asset Management in loans across the country on hotels, shopping centers, multifamily developments, office buildings and mixed-use developments. We additionally represent real estate finance companies in financing origination and acquisition of mortgage loans through repurchase transactions and other leveraged financings.
During economic downturns, our attorneys have been deeply involved in loan workouts and restructures, foreclosures and receiverships, and in joint venture workouts, acting on behalf of lenders, borrowers and equity investors. We have, on behalf of lenders, been responsible for the foreclosure and workout of loans, on an individual basis, in the hundreds of millions of dollars, including handling the two largest commercial real property foreclosures in the history of the State of California. We additionally represent mezzanine lenders in the enforcement of their rights in respect of pledged collateral under the Uniform Commercial Code
