In recent years, his practice has focused upon representation of lenders, including domestic and foreign banks, insurance companies and other financiers. His work has included documentation of construction loans, permanent loans, mini perms, unsecured and borrowing base credit facilities, and negotiation of real estate loan workouts.

He has represented lenders who purchase multifamily housing revenue bonds in private placements. He has also assisted lenders who provide direct pay letters of credit in lower floater financings and backup letters of credit in bond financings in which other financial institutions provided long-term credit enhancement.
