SBA & USDA Lending

SettlePou has a nationally recognized reputation providing legal services to the SBA and USDA lending industries. We have successfully closed, serviced, and collected thousands of SBA and USDA loans over 30+ years. Three of our shareholders are former SBA District Counsel, which provides us with invaluable insight and relationships in the representation of our SBA lender clients. Three of our paralegals have each been working at SettlePou closing and documenting such loans for 25 years. Our depth of experience is unparalleled.

We work in teams composed of attorneys and paralegals. All of our team members, whether in loan closing or loan collection, maintain leading-edge knowledge of the SBA and USDA regulations, procedures, SOPs, and processes in order to protect and enforce your government loan guarantee. This “value added” component distinguishes us from other law firms, which may perform such services without a clear understanding of what it takes to protect the loan guarantee. Our clients include both high-volume state, regional, and national PLP lenders, as well as those lenders who are only occasionally involved in these government lending programs.

We are active members in the National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders (NAGGL), North Texas Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders (NTAGGL), National Association of Development Companies (NADCO), and other SBA industry organizations. You can rely on us to manage and help mitigate the risks associated with SBA and USDA lending.
