Evan Blewett, a distinguished attorney with extensive experience in commercial real estate and corporate finance transactions, has joined Meltzer, Purtill & Stelle LLC (MPS Law) as a partner.
Evan represents local, regional and national lenders and financial institutions with an emphasis on those that make, package, and service Small Business Administration (SBA) 7(a) and 504 loans, as well as companies who borrow under such programs.
“Evan brings a wealth of experience in representing lenders and borrowers in SBA loans,” said William J. Mitchell, managing partner of MPS Law. “In that area, he’s one of the best in the business. His talent and capabilities complement and enhance our middle-market commercial real estate and corporate M&A and finance practices.”
Prior to joining MPS Law, Blewett was a principal at a mid-size Chicago firm. With a background in litigation and statutory and regulatory compliance, he helps his clients conduct compliance reviews and research to anticipate and react to changes in the law. His experience in transactional lending gives a unique perspective on asset sales, stock and membership sales, and both construction and non-construction commercial real estate lending.
“I’ve always held MPS Law in high regard,” Blewett said. “The firm’s reputation is impeccable, and the culture truly is entrepreneurial. It’s a great fit for my practice.”
Blewett earned his undergraduate degree in political science and government from DePaul University and also earned his law degree from the DePaul University College of Law. He lives in Chicago and enjoys sailing and traveling.
