Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. is pleased to congratulate the members of our Banking practice group on 20 successful years of providing responsive and resourceful legal services to our banking, private equity, hedge fund, fintech and many other firms. Our Banking group represents numerous banks and other financial institutions in a variety of lending and loan workout and restructuring activities. The group also assists our business clients with a wide range of financing requirements.

The 20th anniversary celebrates our attorneys’ extensive experience and knowledge of addressing the challenging issues of middle-market lending, collections of credit and asset collateral and protections. Whether drafting or reviewing complex documents or determining effective strategies in handling a workout or necessary litigation, for two decades our Banking attorneys have provided the know-how necessary to handle all stages in the life of a credit transaction – from origination to disposition.

“It’s amazing,” said Ed Burke. “It’s been 20 years of fantastic growth. I could not be prouder of our attorneys who have grown up with me here at the firm as well as many of our clients, most of whom we now consider friends.”

Josh Hyman, former principal at the firm, along with Jim Gottlieb, former principal and current of counsel, started the Banking practice 20 years ago. In 2004, Burke was the first associate hired in the group after which Cisco Connell joined as an associate. During the Great Recession, the Banking group exploded in size due to pressures in the real estate markets. This resulted in the group adding a number of new clients and becoming a national practice in Chapter 11 bankruptcy, SBA and conventional workout matters. In 2012, Adam Moreland joined the firm, focusing on commercial lending transactions and, at that point, the Banking group became a full service, litigation and transactional team. Today, the group continues to represent more than 100 financial institutions ranging from small community banks to the largest financial institutions in the country.
