Dino Fazlibegu focuses his practice on representing investment banks, insurance companies, hedge funds and other financial institutions in complex real estate finance transactions.
I have almost 20 years of experience in handling all types of loan originations, including mortgage loans intended for securitizations, mezzanine loans, bridge loans and credit facilities. My experience is comprised of all types of real estate, including hotel, retail, office, multifamily, industrial, manufactured housing and golf course properties, ranging from single-asset financings to highly structured portfolio transactions involving multiple lenders and hundreds of properties located throughout the United States.
I have also represented portfolio lenders and special servicers of securitized loans during the recent downturn in the economy in numerous workouts and restructurings of secured debt transactions. I have provided clients with strategic advice in such workouts, which have included forbearance agreements, deed-in-lieu transactions, bifurcated “hope note” structures and complex intercreditor issues.
In addition to my real estate finance experience, I have represented clients in numerous transactions involving the issuance of debt through the use of trust preferred securities and subordinated note structures.
The resurgence of the securitized lending markets will result in intense competition among lenders for loan originations, particularly with respect to high profile real estate assets. We have developed a team that utilizes our extensive experience in loan originations and workouts to deliver cost-effective market-based solutions to our clients that implement the lessons learned from the recession.
