Why Do I Need a Commercial Lending and Borrowing Attorney?

When taking part in a large commercial transaction, it is highly advised that you have a Commercial Lending and Borrowing Lawyer on your side.

Too many business owners try to take on the responsibility of negotiating alone. They’ll often end up with a painfully disappointing deal, or make a critical error that fails to comply with Florida law, making the entire deal collapse. An attorney will be involved in the transaction from start to finish and in any scenario ensure that your contracts are unimpaired.

With so many factors in any real estate financing deal, you need knowledge of each area of law from real estate, to tax and corporate affairs. Make sure you work with a law firm that has represented clients in multiple areas of law.

A St Petersburg Commercial Lending and Borrowing Lawyer can represent:

  • Entrepreneurs
  • Private Lenders
  • Banks
  • Commercial Mortgage Brokers
  • Construction Lenders
  • Real Estate Developers
  • Private Individuals


Sometimes, a borrower is unable to pay back the necessary amount during a loan. An attorney can help find a workout agreement, that satisfies the client as much as possible during the circumstances. This may include writing a simple letter, filing a lawsuit or striving to take possession of any collateral used to secure the loan.

If the borrower files for bankruptcy, a lawyer will represent the lender through meetings with creditors, filing claims and signing off reorganization plans to protect the security interests of their clients.

Working Capital, Mergers and Acquisitions

For most companies, working capital is required to run the business every day without hitches. For this to happen, they need healthy cash flow often gained through a working capital loan.

However, some companies need more than just loans and seek commercial financing to fund mergers and acquisitions. These are extremely complex and need various funding agreements to be put in place. Cash payments, exchanges of stock and new entities are often required and need to be prepared in a timely manner. Working capital agreements, mergers and acquisitions are rarely ever the same. You’ll need an attorney who is well attuned to their complicated nature, so they can bring you the money you need.
