The many and varied legal needs of financial institutions range from complex to relatively routine. No matter the complexity, having legal counsel who understand the goals and objectives of your institution and who can advise on the best way to ensure that your needs are achieved is a critical part of the process. The Banking Law attorneys at JKW work closely with our clients and regularly serve them in the following ways:  

  • Drafting and preparing loan documents
  • Drafting and preparing opinion letters for lenders
  • Negotiating the terms of transactions, including with third parties such as brokers and lenders
  • Drafting commercial leasing agreements and assisting in lease negotiations
  • Drafting land bank documents and lease agreements
  • Advising clients in real estate acquisition, development, construction, and renovation financings

Financial Institution Litigation

In addition to trusting the Banking Law attorneys of JKW to provide transactional legal services, our clients rely on us for counsel when disputes arise. We are well-versed in handling litigation for lenders, including collections cases, creditors’ rights matters, foreclosures, receiverships, and lender liability defense.


Financial Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Sometimes the best outcome for a client requires a non-litigation approach to a dispute. The Banking attorneys of JKW regularly provide representation in private arbitrations and mediation services to resolve conflicts.

JKW’s Mediation and Conference Center in the Arizona office is equipped with digital audio and video technology and wireless, high-speed internet and intranet connections to support the alternative dispute resolution processes of mediation and arbitration.
