Scope of Services

SettlePou’s Commercial Lending practice group provides legal assistance to lender clients ranging from small independent banks to bank and non-bank lenders with regional and national loan documentation and closing needs. We give advice and provide documentation for numerous conventional loan needs including revolving credit, real estate development, construction, loans to professionals and other types of lending. To serve our clients with national lending needs, we have become knowledgeable and efficient in coordinating closings in states other than Texas, and members of our staff are well versed on loan documentation and title issues and consideration in numerous states. In short, we are confident that our services and expertise cover all of the needs that American Business Lending will have with respect to commercial loan documentation.
