Shawn Hopper specializes in drafting and negotiation of commercial loan documentation, including real estate secured financing, asset-based financing and motor vehicle floor planning.
He also has experience in syndicated loan transactions, intercreditor arrangements and credit enhancement facilities for variable rate bond issues, such as commercial letters of credit and standby bond purchase agreements.
Shawn drafted and negotiated loan documentation and reviewed due diligence in connection with the acquisition of multiple out-of-state automobile dealerships and related real estate assets. Multiple issues were involved with the various parcels of real estate. He had to work quickly and efficiently to bring multiple parties together including the borrower's counsel and the title company to solve lien and title issues so that the transaction could close in a timely manner. In the end, he resolved all the title issues, put the appropriate agreements in place and allowed his client to close the transaction in relatively short order so they could keep their long-time and very important customer satisfied.
