Commercial Finance & Contracts

Wood + Lamping’s Commercial Finance & Contracts Group has represented a broad range of parties in an extensive variety of commercial transactions.

We work with individuals, businesses, lending institutions, municipalities and certified development companies on a regular basis to address their lending and borrowing needs. Whether the transaction is an acquisition, sale or refinance of real estate, working capital loan equipment lease, or a complex tax increment financing project, our clients are confident knowing that Wood + Lamping’s Commercial Finance attorneys have walked those paths before.

Our Commercial Finance Group regularly works with national and regional lenders in the negotiation and documentation of commercial and real estate loans. Our lending experience extends beyond the conventional finance transaction to include additional loan programs such as the State of Ohio 166 Program, United States Small Business Administration 7A Guaranteed Loan Program, and the United States Small Business Administration 504 Loan Program. Our attorneys have participated in thousands of United States Small Business Administration transactions, providing Wood + Lamping’s clients with the most extensive experience in SBA lending in the region.

Our business clients benefit from our experience in the negotiation of commercial loan documents, the creation of appropriate borrowing entities, and the ability to get transactions closed. We take the time to understand the specific issues most important to our clients to enable them to achieve the most out of the transaction in which they are involved. We use our experience in working with
lenders and borrowers to guide our clients through a process that may be confusing and intimidating. Our goal is to provide our clients the best result and the best experience. Our team approach, using experienced attorneys and experienced commercial paralegals, provides our financial institution clients the highest level of service and quality, while emphasizing efficiency and cost.

Because of the depth and breadth of our other Practice Groups, the Commercial Finance Group has tremendous resources within the firm to devote to transactions that may include unique facts and issues. Whether the transaction requires input from our Intellectual Property Group, Bankruptcy Practitioners, or our Municipal Practice Group, Wood + Lamping devotes the resources to each transaction that are necessary to get the deal done in a timely, but most importantly, accurate fashion. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you regarding your commercial finance needs.
