We strive to avoid obstacles in financing transactions, but we know that obstacles arise from time to time.  Through our extensive experience, we are equipped to find practical solutions to these obstacles.  And when circumstances beyond anyone’s control lead to trouble, our finance attorneys collaborate with our litigation attorneys to restructure and work out troubled loans using the most efficient and least painful process possible, working to reach negotiated resolutions of troubled credit situations when feasible and resorting to litigation if necessary.

In particular, our team has experience advising and assisting lenders to maximize their recovery of troubled loans while minimizing risk exposure and expense.  We have represented clients in a variety of matters involving distressed credit situations, including:

  • Commercial and real estate loan restructuring and workouts
  • Public and private UCC sales
  • Judicial foreclosures
  • Relief from the automatic stay and avoidance actions in bankruptcy litigation
  • Fraudulent conveyance litigation
  • Guarantee litigation
  • Lien priority litigation
  • Intercreditor issues

Why PFS?

We bring a creative, efficient and practical approach, leaning on our deep experience and looking across practice groups when appropriate, to get finance transactions done as smoothly as possible.
