An associate in the real estate practice group, Kyle Binns is developing a practice in all aspects of commercial real estate. He represents lenders, borrowers, developers, debt buyers, owners of retail centers and office buildings, retail and office tenants, and other business owners in a wide variety of real estate and general business matters.
Mr. Binns handles numerous real estate matters in Missouri and Kansas, including extensive title review; commercial and residential foreclosures; lender and borrower representation in various aspects of real estate finance including acquisition financing and loan workouts; creditor representation in Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases; land sales and acquisitions; apartment acquisitions; research involving complex real estate issues; drafting of condominium declarations and other governing land use restrictions; miscellaneous litigation related to those real estate matters; and judgment debtor asset investigation.
Since 2010, Mr. Binns has represented a national client which has purchased multiple large distressed and performing loan portfolios from the FDIC and other institutional lenders. He has also recently represented a large local credit union in connection with various loan and other business matters. Finally, Mr. Binns has been responsible for all legal matters related to a client’s construction equipment leasing portfolio, including negotiation of servicing arrangements, vehicle titling issues, account collections, repossessions, and documentation of sales and new leases.
While attending the University of Kansas School of Business and School of Law, Mr. Binns worked in the lending department at Douglas County Bank in Lawrence as a credit analyst. There, he participated in loan committee meetings and analyzed client financial statements and credit quality. The experience provided him with a unique understanding of banking and other clients’ business considerations and perspectives, and allows him to better serve those clients’ legal needs.
