As cofounder of McGuire, Craddock & Strother, Chuck McGuire set out to build a law firm with the very best qualities of large, traditional firms with the responsiveness, client-focus, and efficiencies of midsize firms. Chuck provided sophisticated and high-quality counsel to finance clients spanning industries. His work with lenders, borrowers, and corporate trust departments was instrumental in countless major finance deals across the United States, including airport facilities, stadiums, college facilities, toll roads, transmission pipelines, marine terminals, industrial sites, hospitals, multi-family and single-family residences, retirement facilities, charter schools, and public improvement districts.
In a range of complex finance matters, Chuck represented domestic and international banks, corporate federal credit unions, and other lending organizations in legal matters including corporate trust transactions, workouts, purchase and assumption transactions, operational problems, and regulatory issues. A key member of the firm’s Construction group, Chuck represented surety companies that issue both surety bonds and financial institution coverage.
Chuck will be missed, but his legacy lives on throughout the firm.
