Real Estate & Secured Lending Law
Our real estate and secured lending lawyers are often faculty members at seminars sponsored by various law schools, bar associations, title insurance companies and other real estate organizations.
Our real estate and secured lending attorneys have extensive knowledge and experience on a broad range of real estate and commercial lending issues. We regularly represent clients on real estate acquisitions and sales, financing and secured lending, construction, leasing, zoning and land use, regulatory matters including environmental issues, and the exercise of rights and remedies such as receiverships and foreclosures.
Although a substantial amount of our real estate and secured lending work is provided to clients within Memphis and the Mid-South, we often provide legal services on multi-state, regional and national transactions. Within these geographic areas, we work with numerous banks and other lending institutions, real estate brokers and developers, insurance companies, property managers, real estate investment groups and other interested parties in facilitating an extensive variety of real estate and secured lending projects.
Our secured lending and tax attorneys work closely and frequently with our real estate attorneys, and jointly counsel our clients on sophisticated financial transactions such as bond financing, all forms of structured finance and loan transactions, tax deferred exchanges, letter of credit issuance, lender liability issues, drafting and negotiating security documents, loan “workouts”, perfecting interests in collateral, interest and usury issues and subordination and intercreditor agreements.
We also act as agents or approved attorneys for a number of major title companies, including First American Title Insurance Company, Chicago Title Insurance Company, Old Republic Title Insurance Company, Fidelity National Title Insurance Company and Commonwealth Land Title Insurance Company.
