Delivering a Wide Range of Cost-Effective Services to Financial Institutions

Our attorneys are experienced in providing cost-effective services to financial institutions and business entities in the Central Pennsylvania region. We provide counsel in general banking matters, commercial litigation and commercial and residential finance and development work. Our law firm has worked closely with financial institutions to finance the development of numerous projects in the Central Pennsylvania region.

Valuable Assistance Throughout the Lending Process

From due diligence and drafting loan documents, to conducting title searches, we assist financial institutions in planning throughout the lending process. Our attorneys work closely with Commercial Loan Officers and, where appropriate, in-house counsel to ensure a lender’s interests are protected. We understand the importance of a lender's relationship with its customer and bear this in mind while maximizing the lender's security interest in the assets of the borrower in order to protect the financial institution in the event of default.

Providing Assistance Beyond the Loan Closing

We also assist financial institutions with creditors’ rights, including loan restructuring, workouts, foreclosures, collections, bankruptcies and repossessions. In addition, we negotiate and draft forbearance agreements to settle disputes with borrowers. Our experienced attorneys provide efficient and effective legal service throughout the lending process to protect our client's business and legal interests.
