John Adolph is a finance attorney, representing financial institutions, non-traditional lenders, debt funds, developers, and investors in connection with projects throughout the country, including Texas, Florida, California, New York, and Louisiana.

John has extensive experience in commercial real estate loans for office, retail, healthcare, multi-family, and mixed-use developments, with a significant focus on transactions involving data centers, energy projects, cell towers, fiber optic lines, and manufacturing properties. He also handles credit facilities for various operating businesses, including cash-flow and asset-based financings, and syndicated financing, mezzanine loans, preferred equity, loan-on-loan financing, participations, Intercreditor agreements, and the acquisition and sale of note portfolios.

Additionally, he is skilled in loan workouts, including forbearance agreements, loan assumptions, foreclosures, guarantor litigation and recovery, and all phases of post-foreclosure management.

John draws on a deep understanding of business risk in his representation of startups and emerging and mid-market companies, investors, and entrepreneurs, having served as external general counsel in addition to representing businesses with formations, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, restructurings, vendor agreements, and technology transactions.

Outside of the office, John enjoys testing the top 50 barbeque restaurants in Texas for quality, bird hunting with his dog Woody, skiing and biking in Colorado, and slowly—but surely—learning to fly fish.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
