Wayne Cook on Emerging Nonbank Lenders in Law360

Thursday, April 28, 2016

Wayne Cook (Partner, New York) was quoted in an article published by Law360 on April 25th entitled "CMBS Borrowers Waiting For Nonbank Lenders To Emerge." The article continues a previously reported expectation that, as a result of the 2008 market crash, new regulations on CMBS loans are anticipated to make it more difficult for borrowers to finance with big banks.

  • "The first quarter of 2016 has surprised a lot of us... January and February were lost months in real estate finance."
