Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot attorneys guide clients through the process of forming business organizations, including corporations, limited liability companies, and general and limited partnerships. Our representation often includes counseling on forming an organization that will best serve a client’s business goals; drafting and filing organization documents; complying with other qualification and licensing requirements; initial meetings and selection of directors and officers; and the issuance and sale of shares, memberships or partnership interests.
Throughout the last 40 years, we have represented financial institution lenders in both good and bad economic times. Our attorneys negotiate, draft, and interpret all types of commercial loan documents, including loan commitments through loan and security agreements, deeds of trust, promissory notes, and escrow instructions. Financial institutions entering the Alaska market often seek our guidance to establish operations that conform to Alaska law on lending practices, consumer protection, and creditor remedies. We also negotiate, draft, and interpret documents for loan restructurings and workouts, as well as advising lenders on strategies to deal with defaulting borrowers and loan participants.
