JACKSONVILLE (6-7-2016)– Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP continues to grow its National Capital Markets and Commercial Finance Group with the addition of two experienced attorneys in Jacksonville. Beau A. Baker joins the Firm as a partner, and John P. Dyro joins as of counsel.

Mr. Baker practices in the areas of real estate capital markets, financial services, structured and commercial finance, creditors' rights, servicing, and financial restructuring. He has counseled borrowers, portfolio companies, and national and regional financial institutions including banks and funds making debt and equity investments in assets including commercial real estate; corporate and asset-based lending; loans guaranteed by the Export-Import Bank of the United States; debt investments intended for sale on the secondary market as CMBS, CDOs, or other securitizations; loan portfolio dispositions and acquisitions; and related transactions.

Mr. Dyro represents lenders in connection with complex financing transactions. His experience includes secured and unsecured loan transactions, real estate and construction lending, asset-based financings, acquisition financings, mezzanine loans and other credit facilities, and healthcare-related financings. He has experience with large syndicated transactions and single-bank deals (both lenders and borrowers).

The Firm’s National Capital Markets and Commercial Finance Group has grown significantly in the past year. The team is co-led by Bradley J. Denson in Atlanta, Jonathan J. Nugent in Charlotte, and Steven A. Hantz in New York. The group focuses on analyzing, documenting, closing, warehousing, servicing, staging, and selling commercial and multifamily mortgage loans destined for securitization, as well as asset-backed lending. The team represents international, national, regional, state, and community banks, insurance companies, developers, borrowers, portfolio companies, funds, mortgage brokers, and other institutional lenders, as well as master and special loan servicers, in a variety of matters. The team works in conjunction with the Firm’s business transaction, tax, ERISA, business reorganization, and securitizations lawyers.

Baker and Dyro merge with the Firm’s existing Jacksonville Capital Markets and Commercial Finance team, which started in 2013 with the addition of Christopher J. McCranie and Kelly Dunn.  Mr. McCranie and Ms. Dunn counsel developers, borrowers, and national and regional financial institutions in commercial real estate acquisitions, development and dispositions, loan transactions, leveraged finance transactions including asset-based loans, letter of credit facilities, trade-receivable securitizations and debtor-in-possession financings, foreclosures, and workouts. Mr. McCranie was in-house general counsel with a regional real estate development company prior to joining the firm.
