Practice/Organization Description

I have concentrated my law practice in secured lending for over thirty years of practice. I regularly represents large and small banks, finance companies, insurance companies and other financial institutions in the structuring, documentation and closing of secured lending transactions, including asset-based loans, commercial loans, commercial real estate mortgage and construction loans, mezzanine loans, leveraged corporate acquisitions, letters of credit transactions, commercial equipment lease financing transactions and factoring transactions.

I served for fifteen years as general counsel to the Midwest Association of Secured Lenders, a trade association of over eighty banks and finance companies located in Chicago and outlying areas. I am a member of the American Bar Association and serves on the ABA Committee on Commercial Financial Services and the ABA Subcommittees on Secured Lending, Loan Documentation and the Uniform Commercial Code. I am also a member of the ABA Joint Task Force on Deposit Account Control Agreements, the ABA Model Intercreditor Task Force, and the ABA Joint Task Force on Filing Operations and Search Logic.
