Timothy Crisp joined Holland & Hart’s Commercial Finance practice. Crisp brings sophisticated commercial finance expertise to advise a broad spectrum of traditional and non-traditional lenders and borrowers.
“I am excited to continue my practice at Holland & Hart where I can offer my clients the benefits of a full-service law firm with a longstanding commitment to excellent client service,” said Crisp. “I look forward to collaborating with the sophisticated practitioners in the firm’s commercial finance, corporate, and real estate practices, particularly in Colorado and Utah.”
Crisp counsels banks and non-traditional lenders such as commercial finance companies, equipment factors and accounts receivable factors to structure transactions in ways that identify and manage risk. He assists company borrowers to access working capital and financing to pursue equipment and business acquisitions by leveraging the value of their current assets. Crisp also represents consumer finance lenders and loan servicers for credit card programs, education loans, patient healthcare loans, and new credit facilities that continue to emerge. He assists all of his clients to navigate the labyrinth of federal and state regulatory requirements to create and maintain compliant lending practices.
Before joining Holland & Hart, Crisp was a partner at Foley & Lardner and Michael Best & Friedrich.
“Tim’s impressive skill set and pragmatic, business-centric approach to transactions helps augment and strengthen our commercial finance team,” said Chris Gunlikson, Banking and Financial Services Practice group leader. “He brings specialized expertise in consumer finance and federal and state regulation of consumer financial services that allows us to expand our services to clients.”
Holland & Hart’s Commercial Finance team represents lenders and borrowers in secured and unsecured credit facilities. The team counsels a wide array of national, regional, and community banks, credit unions, trust companies, the newly reactivated thrifts and agricultural/Farm Credit banks, and other regulated lenders subject to financial institution division oversight. The team also advises private equity funds, hedge funds, and insurance companies, as well as companies seeking debt financing from financial institutions, in a variety of commercial, construction, and real estate loans.
