For more than two decades, the guaranty and loan attorneys at Hecht Walker, P.C. have represented lenders and borrowers in loan, guaranty, and commercial foreclosure litigation matters and debt workouts. A guaranty, simply defined, is a formal promise to repay a debt. The most important aspect of loan and guaranty matters is to ensure that all of the pertinent documents have been drafted, completed, and executed properly. Form notes and guaranties need to be reviewed for completeness, accuracy, binding terms, and changes in the law. An experienced Atlanta guaranty and loan attorney at Hecht Walker, P.C. can conduct that review for lenders and borrowers alike, reviewing matters such as the terms of repayment and the terms and conditions of the formal “promise.”
On some loan and guaranty documents, a Hecht Walker, P.C. attorney may recommend major or minor changes to our lender-clients on their form guaranties and notes. Sometimes, note and guaranty documents do not include on the forms the sufficiently strong binding language that will assist a lender in properly collecting on the debt should the borrower miss a payment, resulting in a loan default. An attorney with Hecht Walker, P.C. can assist lenders with drafting and including more comprehensive provisions in their notes and guaranties, provisions which should then facilitate a more effective enforcement of those notes and guaranties if necessary.
Similarly, omissions in notes or guaranties should also be examined on behalf of borrowers who are involved in a dispute with a lender, whether it’s a loan or a line of credit. Notes and guaranties should be analyzed for the rates of interest being charged during the repayment period, the correct party designations, the proper language in terms of the designation of the correct loans, and language which accurately and precisely identifies the collateral if collateral is involved.
WE NEGOTIATE – AND IF NECESSARY FIGHT – ON YOUR BEHALF
While our initial intention is always to work with all of the parties involved to find a mutually agreeable solution, Hecht Walker, P.C.’s attorneys are also fully prepared to fight aggressively on behalf of our commercial clients when the circumstances demand it. An experienced Atlanta guaranty and loan attorney at Hecht Walker, P.C. will have the legal knowledge and business acumen to advocate effectively on your behalf and to protect your interests throughout the process.
A large part of note and guaranty disputes involves commercial foreclosures and confirmation litigation. Analysis of potential defenses to the commercial foreclosure and valuation of the property by a certified property appraiser are critical tools for both the lender and the borrower in the commercial foreclosure process and in confirmation hearings. The attorneys at Hecht Walker, P.C. are considerably experienced in both conducting as well as contesting commercial foreclosures and confirmations of commercial foreclosures.
Generally, both parties try to find leverage to resolve guaranty and loan matters and debt workouts in the end. Hecht Walker, P.C.’s attorneys help lenders and borrowers find the leverage they need to bring about an amicable solution which makes good business sense for both parties. Throughout the process, it is imperative for both sides to keep in mind FDIC requirements. Certain loans are subject to loss-share agreements. While balancing all of these concerns, an Atlanta guaranty and loan attorney with Hecht Walker, P.C. will do what it takes to find creative and effective solutions for our guaranty and loan clients. We deal in all forms of loans, including student loans, construction loans, personal loans, business loans and beyond.
