Polsinelli PC Represents Prime Finance Partners in $625 Million Transaction

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 19, 2015) - Polsinelli, an Am Law 100 firm with a strong real estate practice in New York, announced that it represented Prime Finance Partners and its affiliated entities in the securitization of commercial mortgage loans originated by Prime with an aggregate original principal balance of approximately $625 Million. Polsinelli handled the documents for the deal. The transaction got underway in early May and closed on August 3.

Commenting on the transaction, Dan Flanigan, Polsinelli Chair of the Department of Real Estate and Finance, said, "We believe that this was the largest deal of this kind since 2008 and one of the more complex deals done this year. By representing both the issuer and the loan seller, we were able to help the client limit the number of parties to the transaction, increase the efficiency, and complete it in 90 days."

Other parties to the transaction included Wells Fargo Securities and Morgan Stanley & Co., as placement agents for the securities offering; Wells Fargo Bank, as master servicer for the pool of mortgage loans and as note administrator for the payments to investors in the transaction; and Cohen Financial, as special servicer and primary servicer for the loans in the pool.

There were eight classes of securities, six of which were offered in a Rule 144A private offering, and two of which were purchased by a Prime affiliate.

The securities were rated by DBRS and Moody's.
