Diligence. Defined as careful and persistent work or effort, diligence is a hallmark of successful lending counsel. Our attorneys combine a single-minded attention to detail with extensive industry knowledge and practical business experience in our representation of lenders in a variety of finance transactions. We work tirelessly to structure, negotiate, and document commercial loans across a broad range of facility types and secured by a wide array of collateral to benefit our lender clients. Protorae Law strives to ensure that each loan we handle is closed efficiently and documented in a clear and concise manner.
The attorneys in the group have diverse legal backgrounds, with experience in real estate, business transactions, corporate finance, employment law, foreclosures and litigation, and we leverage our breadth of knowledge within the firm to address the myriad issues that can arise in a loan transaction. Further, the practice team’s attorneys are supported by skilled paralegals and legal assistants to provide our clients with uncompromised legal services on a cost-effective basis.
We serve international, national, regional and community banks, large financial institutions, private and other non-traditional loan providers covering the full lifecycle of the lending process – from commitment to closing. The practice team’s focus on commercial lending provides it with an in-depth understanding of the always changing nature of “what is market” in many types of loan transaction types, providing our loan officer clients with an invaluable resource in working with their borrowers. When obstacles do arise in the lending process, our attorneys are adept at providing creative legal solutions to get the deal done.
