Real estate construction projects—ranging from office buildings to retail spaces to residences—are risky undertakings not only for developers but also the lenders who provide the financing to carry them out. To protect their interests, both sides go through a complex process of negotiating a construction loan which includes the structure of financing, due diligence, closing documents and certain guarantees, insurance requirements, and waivers from liens, among many other matters.

Gillad Matiteyahu ’13, Assistant General Counsel at Bank OZK (the largest financier of construction projects in New York City in recent years), will give a broad overview of the different stages of construction financing and the legal details that borrowers and lenders must consider before closing a transaction.
