Lisa Montague brings to her healthcare finance practice in-depth experience representing public and private clients with strategizing, organizing, documenting, and closing complex financing deals across the U.S. and internationally

Focused on Healthcare Finance

A member of Nelson Hardiman’s finance practice group, Lisa represents cannabis investors and lenders, healthcare providers, including hospitals, physician organizations, long-term and behavioral care providers, telemedicine providers, and other healthcare-related organizations, in financial transactions. She focuses on mergers, acquisitions, asset-based loans, private equity, cash flow securitization, and debt and equity finance within the highly regulated cannabis and healthcare services industries.

Background in Project Finance

Before joining Nelson Hardiman, Lisa gained invaluable experience as an associate at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy, LLP representing sophisticated banking institutions financing intricate, high-value projects for large-scale infrastructure and energy projects.

Life Outside the Firm

When she is not tackling the challenges of her clients, Lisa champions the public health issues of infertility, autism, and the opioid epidemic. She is not serious all the time, however, she enjoys spending time in the kitchen with her two sons cooking, baking, and creating new recipes (sometimes better described as culinary experiments).
