Christian T. Laden is a Director at Huck Bouma, PC and represents clients on a wide range of real estate, corporate and tax matters, focusing his practice in the areas of commercial real estate (including but not limited to acquisition, disposition, leasing, refinancing, development, and construction), real estate finance, business/corporate transactions, residential real estate, and estate and legacy planning.

Christian has significant experience working with and routinely acts as outside general counsel and advisor for small and mid-size businesses, commercial real estate companies, including overseeing legal, corporate and finance matters with regard to their commercial real estate holdings, construction and property management activities as well as numerous local and national asset-based private lenders, real estate investors, and mortgage pool funds.

Prior to joining Huck Bouma, Christian worked for law firms in the west and northwest suburbs of Chicago, including his own firm from 2009-2016 while also acting as in-house general counsel for a Chicagoland area real estate developer, landlord and construction company. From his first-hand experience as a business owner and in-house counsel, Christian greatly appreciates and understands the unique legal and business issues that small and mid-size business and real estate clients confront on a daily basis, and the tremendous value of having well-structured transactions and creating business practical solutions for all parties involved.

Christian received his law degree from DePaul University College of Law and also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Mathematics (concentration Actuarial Science), Summa Cum Laude, from Niagara University. While attending Niagara University, Christian was a member of the Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Team.

Christian resides in the western suburbs with his wife and their three children. Christian enjoys traveling and spending time with his family and playing men’s league hockey. Christian is an active member in his church and bible study group, and particularly enjoys being a volunteer attorney at his church’s monthly pro-bono legal clinic (in conjunction with Administer Justice) as well as being a case maker for the Christian-faith.
