A banking attorney may assist with intellectual property rights, protect real estate, open up new avenues of finance for a big project, or establish the legal and financial parameters of a business partnership.

8 Essential Aspects of Finance Law Today

As a banking law firm, Wallin Hester takes on challenges without flinching.  Our clients come to us with a wide range of projects in vast array of business fields.  Still, their requirements often come down to these eight aspects that demand a banking attorney's skills.

  1. Borrowing:  Documented repayment terms can help or hurt a business bottom line .It is essential to have an Arizona attorney who can review or negotiate a business loan agreement. We handle these contracts for clients and for banks, which has helped our lawyer team become better and better at negotiating the best terms.
  2. Restructuring: When a loan is working against a client's interests, our firm can help with restructuring the deal. This may be done preemptively to avoid financial stress, or it may be due to financial losses or even insolvency.  Our AZ attorneys can help you plot the best legal path in any situation.
  3. Project Financing: Borrowing money is a tricky process, and you must have your interests protected. You need a business lawyer who can achieve this, even when you are dealing with a multi-phased project involving many other players, such as other businesses, other banks, government agencies, and the like.  You want to choose a Phoenix law firm with top talent who will work together on your behalf.
  4. Real Estate Acquisition and Development: When ones considers how complicated the mortgage document is for a single home, it is no surprise that a commercial real estate acquisition will require even more complicated legal documentation. The only way to be certain that the terms benefit you is to hire an Arizona banking lawyer with extensive real estate law knowledge. Having an expert to watch out for your legal rights also helps protect your business from fraud.
  5. Acquisition Finance:  Even when the purchase is agreed upon by all parties, acquiring another business is complicated. If every aspect isn’t covered in the original agreements, there can be financial consequences and legal hurdles that could jeopardize the acquisition’s ultimate success.
  6. Leveraged Financing: When you are trying to start an enterprise or grow a business, it can take capital you don’t have. That’s when you need to leverage financing to acquire business assets such as another company, real estate, or critical equipment infrastructure.  Negotiating the best amount and the most favorable terms is a delicate process. Ensuring the final contract matches those negotiations is essential.
  7. Asset-based Borrowing:  Like leveraged financing, asset-based borrowing must be done with great finesse. We handle this for construction firms and many other clients in Arizona, Utah and Nevada.
  8. Insolvency and Bankruptcy: When business troubles lead toward insolvency or bankruptcy, clients need a Phoenix banking attorney that will protect their interests in new banking contracts to address these problems.
