At Jackson Walker, we have decades of deal-based experience in the commercial and real estate lending markets that enables us to handle even the most complex transactions from start to finish in a manner that emphasizes efficiency and adds value for our clients.

We have extensive experience representing both lenders and borrowers in a variety of loan transactions. Our team approach draws on the experience of attorneys in several practice areas to provide comprehensive services while creating efficiencies for our clients. We regularly represent banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions, as well as nonbank lenders such as public and private companies and insurers. We also represent borrowers, and that gives us unique insight into what types of deals work in today’s competitive market.

Our structure gives us the flexibility to handle a broad range of transactions, tailoring our services to meet each client’s specific needs. We structure and document everything from straightforward term loans and revolving lines of credit to complex credit facilities for multimillion-dollar real estate portfolios. Regardless of the scope of the project, we are committed to protecting our clients’ best interests by providing the highest quality of legal representation without “over-lawyering” the transaction.

Members of Jackson Walker’s core Finance team have weathered two significant downturns in the commercial finance market and have substantial experience in loan modification, debt restructuring, workouts and foreclosures. As economic conditions improve, we are well poised to help our clients seize opportunities for growth and achieve their specific business objectives.
