Practical Advice for Lenders and Borrowers

Lending transactions are a principal focus of the firm’s banking practice, ranging from complex commercial financing arrangements to residential mortgage loans. I regularly represent lenders and borrowers and therefore understand the requirements and expectations of both sides of the loan transaction. This dual perspective allows me to offer practical advice to lenders regarding Loan Structure and Documentation and to provide focused Borrower Representation services. The Kaplan Law Firm also provides Mortgage Modification and other debt-restructuring services to borrowers, and advises clients regarding Bankruptcy options.
