Her positive relationships with lenders and lender counsel keep the lines of communication open and timelines moving smoothly with less cost added. She considers herself a member of her clients’ team, going beyond the basics to ensure that all aspects of their transaction have been considered. She works closely with attorneys in our other practice groups, such as Tax, Real Estate, Litigation & Dispute Resolution, Environmental, Intellectual Property & Information Technology, and Insolvency & Reorganization to assist with each client’s individual needs.
