Chuhak & Tecson is pleased to announce that Janet Wagner has joined the firm as a principal. Wagner focuses her practice on banking and commercial financing transactions. She provides trusted counsel, exacting documentation and clear communication to commercial banks, credit unions, institutional lenders, insurance companies and other lenders in a wide range of commercial and real estate financing matters.

A highly skilled attorney with extensive experience in analyzing transactions in the banking, corporate and real estate areas, Wagner enjoys creating documents that reflect the exact intentions of the transaction, especially when the transaction is challenging and more unusual. With her comprehensive knowledge of all phases of a loan or credit transaction, she is able to chart the progress of a matter while explaining the technicalities and route to a successful closing.

“We are so excited to have Janet join our team,” said Ed Burke, principal and practice group leader, Banking group. “She brings not only a wealth of experience on the documentation side, but practical experience to help our clients from A to B in the most efficient manner possible.”

In addition to real estate and commercial lending, Wagner has advised lenders on documenting loans secured by unique collateral, including boats, aircraft, rail cars and film rights. Working with her colleagues at the firm, she also handles commercial transactions and corporate matters, counsels clients on the day-to-day operations of businesses, reviews and negotiates contracts and other business documents, and advises clients on corporate governance matters and choice of entity.

Wagner received her LL.M. degree in Child & Family Law and her J.D. from Loyola University Chicago School of Law and earned her B.A. degree, cum laude, in Philosophy, from Mundelein College (now Loyola University Chicago).
