Banking, Finance & Workout
Seeing the big picture is a huge advantage. Our finance and banking lawyers not only know banking and finance law, they know how it applies in business, real estate and the other areas where you make your money. That’s how we bring value; not by duplicating what you know, but by adding our knowledge so that you can meet every legal challenge effectively, confidently and cost-effectively.
In matters of banking, finance and workouts, our attorneys know all the moving parts, from the preparation of loan documents for commerical and residential loan transactions, restructuring and workouts to evictions and receivership litigation, and everything in between. Hellmuth & Johnson has extensive experience representing state and federally chartered institutions of all sizes, along with asset-based lenders, finance companies and mortgage lenders. Our clients include mortgage originators and financial services companies, who we represent against claims brought by lenders for indemnification and demands for mortgage repurchases or “buy-backs.” We also serve borrowers – including individuals and businesses – in commercial loans and credit transactions. Our work includes document negotiation and preparation, ongoing legal counseling, and representation of banks and other financial institutions in employment matters, insurance claims, construction defect matters and many other areas where business and legal interests intersect.
While our practice encompasses banking, finance, lending, and workouts, our lawyers experience goes well beyond them. The firm’s uniquely collaborative nature activates our collective resources across all of our practice areas, including litigation, construction, real estate, emerging business and more. Our ability to work across departmental lines is a distinct asset, which our clients access every day.
