The Commercial Finance Practice Group provides the depth and scope of legal service that comes from decades of experience representing clients in a broad spectrum of industries in complex transactions. We bring skills and know-how to each financing transaction that few area law firms can match. Our ability to tap legal resources and skills readily available within the Firm's other Practice Groups greatly enhances our effectiveness in structuring and documenting transactions.

Our restructuring and workout experience complements our transactional practice. We are regularly called upon to provide restructuring advice for troubled loans and assets. As circumstances warrant, we work closely with the Firm's Litigation and Tax attorneys to provide, under one roof, all of the capabilities and legal resources required to meet our clients' needs.

Bleakley Platt is committed to our clients’ success and believes that in some instances, an alternative fee arrangement may be preferable to a traditional hourly fee structure. Such arrangements require approval by the Firm’s management.  To learn more about the Firm’s policy regarding alternative fee arrangements, click here or speak with a partner.
