For real estate lenders, developers and owners alike, Shaw Fishman offers comprehensive service in all aspects of real estate loans and financing. We can help structure the financing of any development project, using conventional lending and unconventional sources like syndications, synthetic leasing, securitization, and real estate investment trusts (REITs). Our lawyers advise owners, syndicators, underwriters and investors (including entrepreneurial individuals and companies) on financing strategies, and excel at evaluating real estate and facility portfolios and converting debt and expense liabilities to maximize asset value. We can evaluate and structure financing alternatives, analyze lease versus ownership advantages, and identify tax and economic incentives. And both lenders and borrowers value our advice on resolving loan problems, including defaults, workouts, repossession, foreclosure and receivership.
Our attorneys represent developers and owners in the negotiation and documentation of all aspects of real estate financing. We also represent institutional lenders with respect to their secured real estate lending business.
