Our Firm

Moving Finance Forward

We have repackaged our extensive large law firm finance experience into a super-efficient, well-focused boutique law firm. No “silos” here! We deploy a continuum of experience with a full appreciation of the power of cross-pollination to create great financing solutions.

We also assemble and lead teams of specialist lawyers drawn from the outstanding lawyers that we have worked with, or opposed, during our many years of practice. We now have the freedom to pick truly great specialists rather than relying on lawyers who just happen to be under the same roof.

Whether it be credit agreements, securitizations, derivatives, private placements, letters of credit, repurchase agreements or FX contracts, to name a few, we strive to combine products and approaches to meet our clients’ needs for timely legal advice on complex financings.

Rutherford Finance Law LLC would be happy to help you move your financings forward. If you need legal help tailoring your financings to your business, please call or e-mail Doug.
