With a sophisticated nationwide real estate financing practice, Krieg DeVault excels at complex secured, syndicated, asset-based, and tax-exempt transactions. Our lending clients range from large national banks and institutional investors to rapidly growing regional banks, and our work with borrowers encompasses a full spectrum of developers and property investors. Members of our team have been commercial bankers and CPAs, so we fully understand the financial nuances of structuring and documenting the deal. Both lenders and borrowers value our advice on resolving loan problems, including defaults, workouts, repossession, foreclosure, and receivership. We know that borrowers and lenders both want cost efficiency in their real estate lending transactions, so we have developed standardized loan structures and documentation that meet market needs. And because we handle all types of loan transactions and lending relationships, we can offer valuable transactional guidance that helps any deal close successfully.
