Our bank and finance attorneys serve institutional lenders, businesses, individuals, rating agencies, bond underwriters, bond issuers, trustees, and lender agents in connection with loans and other financing transactions. Our years of experience in this legal discipline originated with the firm's involvement in the founding of two of Sarasota's earliest financial institutions: First Federal Savings and Loan Association and Sarasota State Bank. Both banks prospered with the growth of the Sarasota area, and ultimately merged into one of the nation's largest banks. In today's more complex economy, our clients include lenders and borrowers seeking counsel regarding an array of financing structures including conventional financing, bond transactions, asset securitization, and syndicated equity capital raises.
We provide complementary seminars to banking clients on current topics such as legislative updates, basics of zoning and land use regulations, title insurance coverage for mortgagees, the impact of Florida's Construction Lien Law on lenders, and understanding construction bonds.
