Holly A. Stocker

Lending attorneys can sometimes be Dr. No, and that’s just not me.

My Approach

I thrive on complex deals that allow me to come up with creative solutions for my clients. I work closely with them to structure and negotiate transactions that make business sense and that work for all parties. I am able to apply my background in finance to balance the economic aspect of each transaction with the law. Especially in the real estate finance and tax credit space, whether a deal closes is subject to so many external pressures, and I work with my clients to manage the entire deal and help push it toward closing.

I am deeply invested in helping to develop the next generation of lawyers, and serve as a mentor through the University of Minnesota Minority Mentorship program and as co-chair of the firm’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee, as well as a member of the National and Minnesota Asian Pacific American Bar Associations, Minnesota Women Lawyers, MNCREW, and others.
