Efficient legal management delivers higher returns
The Tucker Ellis Commercial Finance Group has nearly a century of collective experience representing lenders in all aspects of commercial lending and real estate transactions. We also frequently represent companies in their borrowings—engagements that often involve complicated deal structures, private equity firms, and challenging collateral issues.
Our clients, including foreign and domestic commercial banks, investment banks, and insurance companies, depend on our attorneys’ savvy business acumen, legal skill, and practical knowledge to help them accomplish their goals. We know how to navigate the vast and complex landscape of commercial finance, and we take the time to understand our clients’ issues, providing well-grounded solutions to efficiently complete their deals.
We deliver services to our clients in the most cost-effective way, using a creative and flexible approach. From fee caps to set fees to a variety of alternative fee arrangements, we incorporate the structure that works best for our clients.
Our commercial finance attorneys work closely with the members of our Public and Structured Finance, Mergers and Acquisitions, and Real Estate groups to create a unique overall finance practice with a level of sophistication that distinguishes us from other firms.
