Nicholas Griebel’s curiosity and desire to problem-solve drives him to assist lenders involved in participated, co-lending, and syndicated loan transactions. As an Associate in the Financial Services Litigation, Bankruptcy and Restructuring and Bankruptcy and Distressed Litigation practice groups, Nick realizes that lenders enforcing their rights are looking to remain constantly informed, want to know their alternatives, and want to maximize return in the shortest period of time and in the most cost-efficient manner possible. He collaborates with seasoned attorneys to protect clients’ collateral – obtaining the appointments of receivers, restraining orders, orders of replevin, and other forms of extraordinary relief that are designed to preserve collateral, and sometimes even add value to it, pending disposition.
