March 2, 2016

The Business Advisory Group is pleased to host “SHOW ME THE MONEY – Getting Through the Loan Process” seminar on Thursday, April 7, 2016 from 8:00-10:00 am. The seminar will be held at the offices of Hamburg, Rubin, Mullin, Maxwell & Lupin (375 Morris Road, Lansdale, PA). Continental breakfast will be available. To RSVP please contact Joan Wean at or by calling 215.661.0400.

Whether you are buying a new business, a piece of real estate or equipment or developing land, you will likely require outside financing. Identifying a lender, negotiating the loan and document terms and preparing for closing a loan may be something you do routinely, but more likely it is a once in a while thing. We will outline issues for consideration throughout the process and will show you how to successfully reach the end goal of getting the money.

The seminar will be presented by Merle R. Ochrach, Esq. Merle has been practicing real estate, banking, and municipal law for over twenty years. Merle has represented numerous municipalities, municipal authorities (water and sewer and industrial development authorities), lending institutions, developers and homeowners. Merle represents a number of industrial development authorities with regard to tax exempt financing.
