Alan Keeffe represents financial institutions and other lenders guiding them through structuring, negotiating, documenting, and closing loans, including direct commercial loans in the context of mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, and large syndicated transactions.

Alan also represents numerous small to mid-sized companies, helping them with general corporate matters. Actively engaged in the community, he has served on the board of directors for a number of nonprofit organizations, including in the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club and Emerald Mountain School.

Early in his law career, Alan worked in the legal department of Central Bank of Denver (now US Bank). In that role, he gained firsthand experience, business insight, and an insider’s view of the issues and challenges that arise in banking. This experience enables him to offer clients legal advice based on a real world business point of view as opposed to solely a legal perspective.
