  • “For the past four years, my Atlantic Capital Bank deal team has engaged the legal services of Lindsey Arnold to close several large and complex bank loan transactions.  To name a few, these deals include a $10million line of credit to a linen service company, a $15million Term Loan to a prominent, market leading textile manufacturer (and a subsequent recapitalization of this loan arrangement), a $12million Term Loan facility for a major grocery store chain, a $12million Construction to Mini Perm Facility and a separate $10million for a large national beverage distribution family of businesses.  Not only was Lindsey’s service of the utmost professionalism and very quick responsiveness, but also she treated the bank’s client’s with a very high level of courteousness and integrity.  Our clients are the lifeblood of our business and it is important that our legal partners handle our relationships get off to a good start.  In addition, rarely do loans sit on a shelf…there are always changes along the way and Lindsey has been very quick to respond to our needs (driven by our clients’ needs) in terms of amendments and deal restructurings.  In addition to solid deal execution…Lindsey is a terrific resource when it comes to early stage legal guidance as we as bankers think through competitive and creative deal structures.  Lindsey has been great and we hope to steer more deals in her direction as we grow the institution.”
