Areas of Practice

Banking & Financial Institutions

Halverson Northwest has a long history of representing banks and financial institutions.  Our representation has included both large and local commercial banks, savings & loan associations, mortgage companies, private lenders, insurance companies and pension plans.  We assist these institutions in transactions throughout the region with particular focus on agricultural loans.  

We have gained particular experience in loan structuring and documentation, debt restructuring and workouts, foreclosures and collections, bankruptcy and litigation (lender liability, lien priority, loan disputes and interpretation, etc.) 

We pride ourselves on efficient and economic representation with a keen understanding of agriculture and businesses of our region.  Representation of our financial institutions and lenders also draws upon our breadth of legal experience within the firm including specialized areas such as real estate, title insurance and coverage, water rights, and environmental regulation.
