Andrew J. Steil

Clear, unobstructed sight of the end goal, and constant communication along the way.

My Approach

I have always known that my career would revolve around banking in some way – once I got into that world it just clicked – and one of the great joys of my work as a lawyer is that each day I get the privilege of working with banks and other lenders. Each lender is different, with differing leadership styles, motivations, strategies, and processes. I appreciate learning about each one, and keeping their individual goals in mind, to ensure the lender makes it out on the other side with as high a return as possible.

While the Great Recession was an incredibly difficult time for people and lenders alike, during that time I was able to see and work on many different type of loans and with different lenders and lenders at a variety of asset size, navigate a wide array of approaches to banking and lending, and talk to so many banks and other lenders to help them deal with the volume, pressure, and regulatory rigor experienced by the industry during that time, which set the stage for my approach today.
