Our financial services practice group handles a broad range of sophisticated banking, servicing and lending matters. Our practice is integrated with our real estate, bankruptcy, corporate, and litigation practices, which allows us to bring to bear the expertise of colleagues from various fields to provide business-oriented, practical advice appropriate to the specialized needs of our client and the transaction at hand.
