Louis Seminski is counsel in Herrick’s Real Estate and Corporate Departments, where he focuses on structuring, negotiating and documenting commercial real estate transactions and financings. In addition to drafting and negotiating all forms of commercial loan documentation for multi-state transactions, he regularly advises institutional lenders, borrowers, commercial banks and investors with respect to a variety of issues.
Additionally, in his role in the Corporate Department, Lou practices general corporate law, drafting governing documents such as by-laws and operating agreements, as well as negotiation and preparation of restrictive covenants, management and healthcare related agreements.
Lou has significant prior experience litigating complex commercial and banking matters, restructurings and workouts, which afford him practical insights into legal concerns that can arise throughout the entire transactional lifecycle.
Lou started his career as a litigator, handling business divorces, professional malpractice claims, restrictive covenant enforcement, governmental matters and intellectual property issues, as well as dispute resolution involving closely-held and multi-generation family businesses. As a result, he has a unique sense of the issues that arise when forming and operating a business, and is called upon by entrepreneurs and start-ups on these issues, as well as capital raising, debt refinancing, and intellectual property licensing and enforcement.
Lou serves as Treasurer and Trustee of the Raritan Bay YMCA, and mentors students at his alma maters, St. Joseph's High School, St. Joseph's University, and Rutgers Law School, where he also serves on its career services advisory panel.
