Commercial Finance & Contracts

Wood + Lamping’s (W+L’s) Commercial Finance and Contracts Practice Area 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 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 the seasoned attorneys in our Commercial Finance Practice Area are working to solve their problems.

Our Commercial Finance Practice Area frequently works with national and regional lenders in the negotiation and documentation of commercial and real estate loans. And 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 (SBA) transactions, assuring W+L clients the most extensive SBA-lending experience in the region.

This practice area’s notable experience benefits our business clients in the negotiation of commercial loan documents, the creation of appropriate borrowing entities, as well as their expertise in closing transactions. We take the time to understand the specific issues that are most important to our clients, so they realize 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 can be confusing and intimidating, and our goal is to provide the best result and the best experience for each of our clients. Our team approach, using experienced attorneys and commercial paralegals provides our financial institution clients with the highest level of service and quality while prioritizing efficiency and cost.

The depth and breadth of our other practice areas afford the Commercial Finance Practice Area tremendous internal resources to devote to deals that may involve unique facts and issues. Whether the transaction requires input from our Intellectual Property Practice Area, bankruptcy practitioners, or our Municipal Practice Area, W+L devotes the necessary resources to each transaction to “get the deal done” in a timely and, most importantly, accurate fashion. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you regarding your commercial finance needs.
