I have worked in the commercial and real estate banking business in Knoxville, Tennessee for over thirty (30) years, and I have worked with LRW attorneys for most of that time. They are knowledgeable and experienced in representing lenders in commercial loan transactions, particularly commercial real estate loans. Dennis Ragsdale is one of the best attorneys in Tennessee for this type of work. I also have a great working relationship with other LRW attorneys, including David Long and John Waters. Randy Miller has provided many title policies for the bank and its borrowers. Complex deals close smoothly and efficiently when these lawyers are involved. I would feel very confident with LRW handling any loan our bank can make, regardless of type or size.
Long, Ragsdale & Waters, P.C., founded in 1986, offers counsel across a wide spectrum of business law. The cornerstone of the ﬁrm is its strong and diversiﬁed commercial transaction and real estate practice. Layered onto that expertise is an equally effective commercial litigation and dispute resolution practice. We also handle corporate, entrepreneurial, employment, banking, wealth management and taxation, bankruptcy, landlord-tenant, construction and utility law. Long, Ragsdale & Waters represents clients that range from Fortune 500 ﬁrms and regional ﬁnancial institutions to small businesses and individuals throughout Tennessee and the Southeast. We are large enough to handle major matters, yet small enough to provide fast and personal service to each of our clients. We are experienced, pragmatic, flexible and capable of representing all clients, from start-up companies to established firms.
