Edward (Ned) Giles

Of Counsel

555 17th Street, Suite 3200, Denver, CO 80202

Ned delivers sophisticated counsel on complex business transactions to clients in the banking, real estate, and agribusiness industries.

Ned provides legal counsel to Colorado financial institutions and special representation for out-of-state lenders engaging in lending transactions involving assets located in Colorado. His financial industry expertise covers the full spectrum from loan documentation, operational and regulatory issues, consumer lending, asset-based lending, problem loan resolution, acquisitions and dispositions, and lender liability issues. Ned’s extensive knowledge of the Colorado Uniform Consumer Credit Code is particularly useful to consumer lenders.

As a cattle rancher and irrigated farmer himself, Ned has a unique understanding of  practical and legal issues facing farmers and ranchers. He combines his business experience and extensive legal knowledge to help agricultural clients choose the right entity structure, acquire and sell land, equipment, and livestock, and negotiate and secure loans.

Ned rejoins Holland & Hart where he began his legal practice more than 45 years ago before serving as a name principal in two prominent real estate and banking law firms in Denver.
