Whether involved in a financing syndication, interpreting the newest accounting changes or evaluating credit or collateral exposures, our attorneys help clients structure deals in both challenging and booming economic climates.

Our versatility is borne out by our ability to put together finance transactions involving local and regional institutions as well as to close major deals for the biggest national lenders. In addition to the experience and knowledge required to facilitate sophisticated arrangements such as structured financing agreements or multi-party syndications, we also deliver all the legal services that traditional commercial financing transactions require.

We provide both general and transactional counsel to clients and collaborate with our colleagues in other practices, such as tax, litigation, workouts and bankruptcy, and transportation, to deliver all the resources our clients' matters may require. In addition to our general commercial finance capabilities, more specific areas of focus include:

In a fast-paced world where client success is dependent upon legal partners who are responsive and proactive, we are known for lawyers dedicated to expediting – not impeding – transactions. Once we analyze the risks and rewards, we present options, not roadblocks, for clients to consider.

The long-term relationships we've forged with clients since the practice was formed more than 50 years ago are a testament to our high quality of work and client service standards. But even more important in today's world of finance is our ability to consistently deliver unparalleled value. Our clients know they can count on Baker Donelson to deliver top quality legal services at a price point that is very favorable, especially when compared to firms on par with our high level of sophistication and experience located in the money centers of New York or Chicago.
