Meet the team

Value-added, business-minded legal counsel

Securing the right type of financing under terms that satisfy a company's immediate needs and strategic goals while balancing the financial objectives and credit risk for the financing source can be a complex balancing act. Our finance practitioners have extensive market knowledge and are experienced at structuring and negotiating financing to meet the needs of our clients.
