Real Estate, Finance, Corporate & Lending Transactions

This Firm's experience in the representation of financial institutions, property owners and developers in effectuating real estate secured transactions is unparalleled. Since the inception of the Firm, lawyers at Miles & Stockbridge have represented the premier banking institutions conducting business in the mid-Atlantic Region in the documentation, negotiation and consummation of all types of real estate financing transactions. When representing property owners and developers, Miles & Stockbridge's comprehensive knowledge of commercial finance and the greater Maryland real estate market combine to provide the skills needed to ensure the successful consummation of the desired transaction. We represent a wide range of lenders, and regularly secure financing for commercial property development projects from:

  • National, regional and local commercial banks
  • Private equity lenders
  • Mortgage companies
  • State and federal economic development agencies as sources of incentive financing
  • Innovative financing pools, such as the delegated underwriters designated nationwide by the Federal National Mortgage Association ("Fannie Mae") to package loans and sell them through secondary markets

In connection with our representation of lenders, property owners and developers in real estate financing transactions, we are experienced in the preparation and negotiation of all required loan documentation and the delivery and review of all necessary due diligence, including title insurance, zoning approvals, environmental assessments, leases, easements and other third-party agreements. While each lender has its own transactional processes and procedures, our work with a multitude of lenders enables us to suggest customized terms and provisions that will allow the parties to overcome even the most difficult impediments to settlement, as well as to build in safeguards that protect the lender and its collateral in the event of default, foreclosure or bankruptcy.
