Grace Rollinger
Associate

My focus is to facilitate a client's business goals while working efficiently and carefully to ensure that the solution we arrive at now is still working for the client years down the line.

Grace Rollinger is a corporate lawyer committed to helping clients solve immediate business needs without losing sight of their long-term goals. Her practice is primarily focused on the negotiation and structuring of mergers and acquisitions, a variety of commercial agreements, entity formation, private equity offerings, and asset and stock sales. She has experience working with a variety of clients, from startups to Texas-based companies with nation-wide operations.  

Grace has also gained familiarity with the loan process through her work creating Bankruptcy Remote Entities for commercial real estate financing transactions. She assists with the representation of borrowers in all types of real estate lending and general corporate lending, including secured and unsecured commercial lending transactions, syndicated credit facilities, commercial mortgage-backed securities and the financing of complex commercial transactions.  

Before joining Gray Reed, she clerked for The Honorable Judge Halbach in the 333rd Civil District Court, which allows her to view transactional work through a litigator’s lens. During law school at Southern Methodist University, Grace served as vice president of the Student Bar Association and staff editor for SMU Science & Technology Law Review
