Banking & Financial Services

Our Banking & Financial Services Practice Team has represented both financial institutions and business borrowers in international financing and business transactions. Our attorneys have extensive experience in structuring, negotiating and documenting cross-border financing and ancillary transactions – whether it’s a business in the U.S. with ventures overseas or a foreign entity doing business on our soil.

Our attorneys regularly provide advice to foreign lenders, businesses and their counsels on a variety of cross-border matters, including “doing-business” issues and the creation, perfection and enforcement of real and personal property liens in the United States. We also regularly advise foreign lenders on loan workouts and enforcement, as well as bankruptcy matters based in the U.S. The close proximity of our Buffalo office to Canada has allowed us to provide legal advice to several Canadian financial institutions in cross-border loan transactions.

In addition to working on behalf of lenders, our Banking & Financial Services Practice Team works closely with our corporate and land use attorneys to help U.S. companies obtain financing outside the country. We do the same for foreign entities looking to obtain financing inside our borders.

As a member of LawExchange International, Phillips Lytle benefits from efficient and affordable access to legal firms throughout the world.
