"Continues to provide a solid guide to the practitioner on the nuts and bolts of documenting commercial loans.  Not only are the explanations of commercial loan concepts and secured transactions rules clear and crisp, but also the forms are a helpful guide to drafting and execution.  This book will continue to be of enormous value to the general practitioner and a handy check even to those who are highly experienced in the field."
—Edwin E. Smith, Bingham McCutchen LLP

At a time when the commercial lending environment is especially unpredictable and anxiety-inducing, it’s more important than ever that you know how to document transactions in ways that secure lenders’ interests, minimize their risks, and protect them from liability.

PLI’s Hillman on Commercial Loan Documentation offers the practical guidance that enables you to do just that. With the aid of timesaving sample forms and sample drafting language, you’ll craft more quickly and confidently the full range of relevant documents, including loan agreements, security agreements, financing statements, pledges, guaranties, and opinion letters.

With the help of Hillman, you’ll conduct effective due diligence on prospective borrowers; use loan closing checklists that ensure every key step is taken to get solid deals done; obtain comprehensive hazard insurance that shields lenders, and draft agreements that protect lenders from environmental risks, resolve conflicts with creditors, and allow lenders to capitalize on lucrative financing opportunities.

Updated at least once a year, Hillman on Commercial Loan Documentation is a valuable practical reference for any attorney, executive, business professional, or public official involved in commercial lending.
