Experienced Business Financing Lawyer Representing Stamford Businesses

Obtaining adequate funding to support short-term operational needs and long-term strategic plans is a challenge that every business must overcome. Securing a commercial loan, however, has its challenges, particularly after the most recent credit and liquidity crisis. At the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, we provide competent counsel that helps clients meet their commercial financing needs.

Astute Commercial Financing Attorney

The credit crunch that followed the most recent financial crisis made securing commercial financing much more challenging. Nearly overnight, small and large businesses discovered that their borrowing cost had increased drastically. Moreover, lending institutions and investors began imposing increasingly onerous requirements before they would provide financing to new and existing businesses. Fortunately, lawyers experienced in obtaining commercial financing were able to help clients prepare and execute an action plan designed to successfully overcome these new challenges. This was no easy task, and at times, even large, well-established financial firms were unable to secure the liquidity they needed to weather the "credit crunch."

At the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, we systematically analyze each business to determine the best course of action for you. We offer a free initial consultation to determine the business' financing needs, the best type of financing to serve those needs, and the ability of business owners to secure commercial financing that makes sense for the business.

After our initial consultation, we work closely with our clients to determine what type of financing is best for the business. For example, a threshold inquiry is whether a business wants to secure debt or equity financing. That is, does a business want to finance its operational needs by taking out loans or by expanding the pool of shareholders (owners) of the business? This answer may be different for each business, and an experienced attorney can help determine the best option for you.

At the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, we cater our services to each business. Whether securing financing to start a new business, buy or expand an existing business, or to finance equipment purchases or leases, we help clients present the information in a way that appeals to commercial lending institutions and investors. We have represented clients with their commercial financing needs for over three decades and are familiar with the process, understand the mechanics of commercial financing deals, and have a working relationship with lending institutions and investors.

Moreover, we have experience helping clients negotiate secured and unsecured loans from banks. Banks have commercial attorneys on their side when they negotiate financing transactions, and so should you. At the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, we aggressively negotiate with lenders to secure favorable terms for our clients and reduce the cost that commercial financing imposes on their business.

We represent clients in Stamford, Greenwich, Norwalk, Westport, Danbury, Darien, and throughout Fairfield County. If you have questions, contact us to get the answers you need. Call today.
