Banking & Commercial Lending

Anastasi Jellum, P.A. is a leading law firm for banks, commercial lenders and other financial institutions throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin. For more than 16 years, our primary concentration has been all facets of banking law including regulation, loan documentation, collections and litigation. As our law firm has grown in size, so too, has the size and reputation of our client-focused practice. When possible and appropriate, we refer prospective borrowers to lenders to establish advantageous banking relationships.

Today, each of our attorneys have banking experience, giving our practice a level of sophistication and bench strength comparable to banking groups found at larger law firms.

Our team’s collective knowledge and understanding of the financial services industry runs deep, which has allowed us to develop a comprehensive list of services that strategically address lenders’ needs on any given day, no matter how simple or complex the issue. We handle more than just a little bit of banking work—this is the main sphere where we invest our time and resources.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in all aspects of banking law, from commercial loan documentation, to state and federal regulatory compliance, to loan collections, workouts and bankruptcy. And when litigation is inevitable, our clients can count on the support of our experienced bank litigators who stand well prepared to represent them in all necessary proceedings.
