Commercial Finance & Banking

Facilitating some of the most complex commercial loan transactions.

Our attorneys understand the financial landscape that affects regional financial institutions and businesses. With extensive experience in all aspects of commercial finance, our attorneys have a proven track record facilitating large, complex commercial lending transactions throughout the New York metropolitan region, and represent sophisticated real estate lenders and developers in many financings. We also understand commercial finance from the inside: Our team includes many lawyers with real-world business experience or advanced degrees in business, accounting, tax, or urban planning; one of our partners previously served as in-house counsel to a major regional financial institution.

  • Corporate Lending

    Farrell Fritz commercial finance attorneys represent many of the New York metropolitan region’s acquisition and development commercial lenders and institutional financing sources, as well as act as local counsel to a number of out-of-state lenders. We assist banks in structuring and closing term loans, credit enhancement facilities, revolving credit facilities, asset-based loans, and multiple currency facilities, and frequently represent agent banks in syndicated multi-bank credit facilities. Our attorneys have significant structured finance experience and experience with commercial paper and medium-term note financing facilities.

  • Real Estate Finance

    Our attorneys have extensive experience assisting financial institutions, commercial real estate owners, investors, and developers in structuring and closing complex financing transactions. Our knowledge of the regional real estate market, coupled with our experience in environmental, real estate and land use and zoning law, allows us to fully serve our financial institution and real estate developer clients. We represent lenders in connection with numerous letter of credit enhancements for industrial development agency transactions on behalf of lenders. Our understanding of lender liability and creditors’ rights issues allows us to counsel our clients on the risks of any particular transaction. We regularly represent real estate developers and owners in obtaining public benefits through industrial development agencies and local economic assistance corporations.

  • Securities Law

    Whether a company is seeking to access public securities markets in an initial public offering or to sell securities in a private placement, the Farrell Fritz team of experienced lawyers can assist with the structuring, strategy, and implementation of these transactions.

    We advise clients regarding all types of equity and debt securities offerings, including underwritten public offerings, private placements, private investments in public equity (PIPES), reverse mergers, rights offerings, exchange offerings and shelf offerings.

    Our commercial finance attorneys also represent individual and institutional investors in the formation of investment funds, investment in portfolio companies, and implementation of exit strategies.

    Our attorneys are experienced in representing a variety of global, national and regional companies in a myriad of industries and:

    • Advise clients regarding their reporting and compliance obligations under federal and state securities laws, stock exchange regulations and related matters.
    • Assist clients in preparing, drafting and filing annual, quarterly and current reports on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K, proxy statements, stock incentive and other compensation plans and prospectuses, and various other SEC and regulatory filings.
