Kevin T. McNamara

Partner

For nearly 30 years, Kevin has concentrated his practice in banking and commercial law and has represented major banks and financial institutions primarily in New Jersey and New York, but also in many other jurisdictions including Pennsylvania, The District of Columbia and Connecticut. He has particular emphasis on the representation of lenders in complex loan transactions and has significant experience in all aspects of lending -- from the issuance of commitment letters to the exercise of remedies under defaulted loans.

Mr. McNamara has successfully handled varied transactions for lenders involving real estate and corporate/asset-based loans, such as bond financings, syndicated transactions, Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae transactions, loans secured by intellectual property, and a broad spectrum of real estate financings, ranging from the largest and most sophisticated construction matters to owner-occupied commercial loans. Mr. McNamara is also experienced in the working out of troubled loans, and the documentation of sophisticated restructuring arrangements.

In addition to the representation of lenders, Mr. McNamara also represents developers and other non-bank clients, primarily in sales, acquisitions and financing of real estate interests.

Prior to joining the Firm in 2007, Mr. McNamara was a partner at Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis, LLP where he chaired the Banking, Business Financing & Creditors' Rights Practice Group.
