CMBS Lending & Servicing Transactions
Delivering value through well-planned, efficiently executed deals.
Our commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) team works in close liaison with loan originators, master servicers and special servicers to nurse, push and execute deals across the nation. We’ve closed a total of 3,500 CMBS loans spanning every state worth approximately $50 billion in volume, including more than 800 loans totaling nearly $13 billion since 2010. Our keen understanding of the legal issues endemic to complex financing enables us to provide value in every transaction, large or small, routine or highly specialized.

Areas of Focus
Our team works predominately on the lender side, but we’ve also completed a significant amount of regional work for a handful of REIT clients as well as numerous regional developers. Unlike most law firms in Middle America, our attorneys are able to issue non-consolidation, springing member, authority to file and New York law legal opinions.
We routinely represent master servicers in connection with a variety of servicing-related matters. We also have represented borrower clients in connection with both sides of assumption transactions, with added efficiency assisting clients in tenant bankruptcies.
