Commercial Foreclosure Lawyers Representing Lenders in Raleigh, New Bern and Morehead City, NC since 1983

Protecting creditors’ rights in litigation over distressed commercial property

Since 1983, Howard Stallings has represented creditors and lenders whose commercial borrowers span many diverse industries. Circumstances often force lenders to make difficult decisions about when to intervene and what remedies to pursue to ensure they don’t bear the brunt of a business failure. For more than 30 years, our attorneys have represented lenders in commercial foreclosure actions. The capital at stake is generally very high, and the financial instruments, quite complex. Our goal is not necessarily to foreclose or force a creditor into bankruptcy, but to help the lender manage the crisis and emerge strong. We work diligently and meticulously to help our clients recover funds through numerous methods, including:

  • Collections of arrears
  • Repossessions of equipment
  • Foreclosures of commercial property
  • Deficiency judgments
  • Loan workouts and refinancing
  • Short sales or deeds in lieu of foreclosure
