Chapman and Cutler's Commercial Lending Group represents a variety of state and federally chartered financial institutions, commercial finance companies, and domestic branch offices of banks chartered in Canada, Japan, France, the Netherlands, and Germany.

Chapman's commercial lending practice has been at the center of our firm's identity and culture since we were founded more than a century ago. We regularly negotiate deals ranging from single-lender unsecured loans to secured, syndicated credit facilities. We have a depth of experience when it comes to asset-based lending, agribusiness lending, and leveraged buyout financing.

The experience we have gained in many years of close collaboration with our clients gives firm attorneys a deep understanding of the business of commercial lending. Together with our clients we get deals done.

We work in specialized teams on behalf of our clients, keeping them involved through all phases of the lending process, from the initial structuring of the facilities through the negotiation of commitments, the drafting and negotiation of the loan documents, to the closing and beyond. In addition, our attorneys have extensive experience in debt restructurings and workouts, both inside and outside of bankruptcy.
