Thompson Coburn’s New York office was established in 2021 through a combination with Hahn & Hessen, a premier boutique firm with nearly a century of experience representing individuals, corporations, financial institutions and other financial market participants in commercial finance, bankruptcy, workouts, and complex litigation.

To commemorate the office's two-year anniversary, our New York Thompson Coburn team took the opportunity to reflect on the office’s rich history and share their perspective on our coming together.

Our New York attorneys provide major money center banks with a full suite of integrated legal services for every stage in the lending process: documenting loans and commercial finance transactions, leading workouts and restructurings for troubled loans, representing lenders in bankruptcies, and advising them on any related commercial litigation and commercial-oriented disputes.  

Our New York office maintains thriving corporate finance and litigation practices involving the representation of business entities and major money center banks in matters such as mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, trust and fiduciary litigation, complex commercial litigation and commercial-oriented disputes.

Thompson Coburn also has a national reputation in bankruptcy representing official creditors’ and equity committees, trustees, secured lenders, debtors as well other parties seeking to purchase distressed assets including claims and debt instruments.  

We also have practitioners experienced in trusts and estates offering services to our corporate and individual clients and their families and financial institutions — from preparing simple wills and forming family trusts to implementing complex estate plans.  Our trusts and estates practice group also provides ERISA advice and counsel in connection with complex financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions.

Our real estate group in New York represents a vast array of real estate players in all types of real estate transactions, including mortgage financings, construction loans, commercial lease transactions, acquisitions and dispositions of real estate assets, and a variety of other real estate related transactions.
