Legal & Regulatory Services

There are hundreds of pages of rules and regulations that must be carefully complied with. We keep up to date on those rules and all changes that occur/arise. We concentrate on providing advice to bank and nonbank lenders on the requirements as well as on complex legal and factual issues related to:

  • Financial transactions
  • Loan administration
  • Bankruptcy
  • Franchises
  • Environmental and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Loans

We conduct escalated legal review, issue guidance and provide final opinions in writing. We review in detail loan files submitted by both the secondary market and directly from participating banks in order to determine when SBA is legally obligated to honor its guaranty.
