Finance

In today’s hyper-competitive marketplace, financial stability, innovative thinking and the ability to efficiently deliver results are vital. Access to funding makes new investments, improvements and expansions possible, and enables you to explore opportunities, adapt to the market and grow. Our attorneys have a wealth of experience helping clients manage, protect and grow their financial resources, including handling all varieties of public and commercial financing transactions.

Within the commercial finance arena, we primarily represent lenders, including national and state-chartered banks, life insurance companies, public-funding sources and other institutional sources of project finance funds. Our attorneys have significant experience structuring a multitude of financing transactions, both secured and unsecured, including loans secured by real estate, inventory, receivables, equipment and other operating assets. We also have experience handling complex, multi-state transactions, including syndicated and participated deals, construction loans and mezzanine investments.

Following a merger with Peck Shaffer & Williams in early 2014, Dinsmore now also boasts one of the top public finance practices in the country. Our group’s experience includes handling a wide range of tax-advantaged transactions for the benefit of states, counties, municipalities, school districts, public and private universities, health care institutions and retirement communities, housing facilities, small manufacturers and nonprofit institutions, among others. We guide our clients through the complex state laws and federal tax and securities regulations to create a financing structure that meets their goals while complying with the numerous rules and restrictions. We assist with structuring the transaction, draft and negotiate all transaction documents, review and analyze all due diligence items, resolve issues and guide the client as necessary to minimize deal risk. Our team approach to transactions allows us to manage overall costs while providing the highest level of experience.

Our finance attorneys routinely work with clients at every step, from consulting on deal terms to analyzing tax implications to handling closing and post-closing matters. We have substantive experience working with nearly every major investment banking firm and commercial funding source in the country, enabling us to provide trusted counsel to meet your needs in any location.
