The complexity of real estate transactions requires a comprehensive understanding of the asset being financed. With the industrywide expertise of Maynard Nexsen’s Commercial Finance and Real Estate practices and our national geographic footprint, we have the know-how and resources to handle the financial structuring of real estate projects of every size – including the largest and most complex.

No matter how large the portfolio, we appropriately staff the deal to reach a timely, successful, and cost-effective closing. In addition, Maynard Nexsen’s full-service platform provides invaluable and seamless access to the strengths of our fellow colleagues throughout the firm whose practices are concentrated in such related areas as mergers and acquisitions, tax, economic development, construction, environmental, and bankruptcy to address issues that oftentimes arise during real estate financing. We understand the structuring and nuances of transactions and the issues that must be addressed to avoid potential devaluation and marketability of the underlying asset. We conduct thorough due diligence to uncover potential issues, analyze risks, and suggest resolutions to mitigate them. Working closely with our clients, we negotiate solutions that protect their interests — regardless of asset type — while constantly moving the deal forward to closing.
