Real Estate Finance, Default Resolution & Servicing

Winstead’s team of 50-plus real estate finance and loan servicing professionals serve the top CMBS lenders, special and master servicers, commercial banks, insurers and private lenders with sophisticated counsel in lending and loan servicing transactions nationwide.  We can structure the deal, help get it securitized, resolve master and special servicing concerns, and follow through on defaults and foreclosures, all at a regional rate structure that offers extraordinary value given our world-class knowledge and experience in the industry.

Winstead attorneys complete deals quickly (typically closing 50 or more a month) because we focus on making transactions go smoothly for parties on all sides of the table.  Above all else, we nurture and value each client relationship, helping national and regional commercial real estate lenders, loan servicers, mortgage bankers and brokers maintain and increase their market share.  Our land-use, real estate development, construction and banking  groups provide a deep bench, offering critical and timely insight to meet closing targets.

On the servicing side, clients benefit from our regional reputation and rate efficiency combined with national capabilities.  We literally wrote the book on Texas foreclosure law, and our business litigation and bankruptcy practices offer the deepest support for any related needs.  Originators and servicers of all sizes know us to be responsive, fair and a pleasure to work with.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
