About Us

Unique in our class, Hahn & Hessen is a mid-sized, commercial-oriented law firm which prides itself on knowing our clients’ businesses extremely well and devoting the resources necessary to accomplish the clients’ goals.

Unraveling Complexity

Since its founding in 1931, Hahn & Hessen has been committed to maintaining a mid-sized practice with world-class sophistication, focusing on finance, debt, and commercial businesses. That remains our mission today.  The firm consistently develops innovative and practical legal solutions for complex financial transactions.  Our attorneys represent leading market participants in all aspects of banking, corporate finance, securities transactions, commercial litigation and alternative dispute resolution, acquisitions, investments, and real estate transactions.  The firm's history and the long-standing commitment of our many institutional and business clients are a testament to our success.

As part of our debt-oriented practice, Hahn & Hessen has a nationally-recognized, award winning practice representing creditors’ and equity committees, financial institutions, trustees and other financial market participants in workouts, restructurings and bankruptcy proceedings.

To complement our finance focus, the firm has a thriving general corporate and litigation practice involving the representation of business entities and high-worth individuals in such diverse matters as mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, trust and fiduciary litigation, and insurance coverage, employment-related and commercial oriented disputes.  We are proud of our tradition of producing legal strategies and creative transaction structures in a cost-effective manner to meet our clients' needs.

Experienced Teamwork

Sophisticated transactions require a team of professionals with the combination of legal skills necessary to complete effectively any project.  Hahn & Hessen’s partners staff our clients’ matters with a cross-section of experienced professionals, but remain involved from start to finish.  As a result of the firm's focus on finance, our attorneys are accustomed to working in cross-disciplinary teams in a seamless fashion. Staffing in this manner distinguishes us from other law firms and enables us to provide the efficient, quality legal services our clients expect.
