Our services are not limited to financings secured by business equipment. We represent clients in a wide range of commercial transactions and secured and unsecured financings, including lines of credit and loans secured by insurance, stock and other intangibles.
We handle real estate transfers and financings nationwide. Our services also include representing clients in mergers and acquisitions of companies through asset or ownership transfers and specific asset transfers, including sales and acquisitions of asset portfolios. We pride ourselves on being able to address the needs of our business clients and providing the same business-oriented service that we offer the equipment finance industry.
Difficulties melt away under the tact.

Although our lessors and lender clients include several members of the Monitor 100, no single client or type of business enterprise dominates our client base. We represent or have recently represented bank-affiliated leasing companies, including a major regional bank and community banks. We have created leasing programs for both existing and start-up equipment leasing companies as well as for vendors entering the equipment finance business. We represent captive vendor finance companies and those who finance vendor-originated transactions. Our clients also include brokers, small leasing companies and lease originators as well as funding sources and lenders. Learn about our policies.
