Serving commercial banks and other financial institutions, Lane McKell assists clients in a variety of matters and transactions. Her practice encompasses bankruptcy, commercial foreclosures, creditor’s rights, contract negotiations, bank regulatory compliance and loan workouts.

Lane brings a practical, real-world approach to her practice. She acquired a variety of work experience prior to her legal career, which provided her valuable insight into a wide range of industries and an appreciation for the concerns and priorities of company owners and executives. These experiences also enable her to see client issues through a wide-angle lens and account for commercial as well as legal considerations when making decisions.

An academic background in science trained Lane to think logically and analytically, and she applies that mindset to help clients gain optimal results.

During law school, Lane served as managing editor of the Georgia State University Law Review and competed and coached on the moot court team.
