Commercial Finance

Commercial Finance

Primary Contact: Brian Rosenthal

Commercial finance is a significant area of practice for us, with representation of both borrowers and lenders.  We represent banks and financial institutions and organizations of every size, from small community banks to publicly held bank holding companies to national banks doing business in Arkansas.

We also routinely serve as local counsel for lenders and borrowers in multi-state transactions involving Arkansas real estate, providing guidance on Arkansas issues and legal opinions to lenders on enforceability of security instruments and other issues.

Our extensive experience allows our attorneys to carefully and efficiently negotiate, document, and close all types of financing transactions.  In particular, our experience in representing both borrowers and lenders allows us to focus on substantive matters and resolve issues in a way that serves the interests of our clients.  We believe commercial lending is more than the production of form documents or negotiation of standard changes to boilerplate clauses.  We bring our experience, knowledge, and imagination to the table for the benefit of our clients in commercial lending transactions.

We give value to our clients in areas such as:

Real estate and business acquisition financing

Construction lending

Asset-based financing

Secured and unsecured revolving and term loan facilities

Multi-lender syndicated commercial lending facilities

Aircraft financing

Vehicle fleet financing

Industrial development project financing and other tax-exempt financing
