Commercial Lending and Loan Documentation

Anastasi Jellum’s bank attorneys have extensive experience handling every phase of the loan process from start to finish. Our work in this area includes loan structuring and documentation, and drafting any subsequent modifications, assignments, amendments or renewals.

Sometimes a question arises on a seemingly straight forward transaction, where it’s helpful to have an extra set of eyes to review bank-prepared loan documents; we are always ready and able to step in and provide guidance that will ensure a client’s collateral position in any deal.

In addition to loan documentation and review, we also assist financial institution clients with portfolio management of a variety of commercial loan transactions. In all instances, our primary goal is to ensure financial institutions avoid common pitfalls associated with commercial lending practices by following a simple philosophy that has instilled confidence in our clients: handle every matter with a sense of urgency, pay attention to detail, meet deadlines, keep clients well informed and above all, do excellent work.

Our attorneys are well qualified to handle the most complex of loan transactions related to:

  • 1031 exchanges and reverse exchanges
