About Us

it matters who you partner with

We have burned the ships and sold out to understand and serve this sector. We love working with entrepreneurs who love working with entrepreneurs. When you choose us, you choose someone as committed to the success of the SBA industry as you are.

It matters who you partner with to grow and manage your SBA lending business. When you choose Baker Lewis, you partner with professionals as committed to SBA lending as you are.

For a combined total of 25 years, this is all we’ve done. We have encountered every kind of challenge and helped navigate dozens of clients through turbulent times and circumstances.

There are as many pitfalls in SBA lending as there are lenders to compete with for the market share you need to succeed.

Our Values

We understand
From our years working for the industry’s trade group, our years supporting its activities, and our years of partnering with industry leaders, we have learned to read the tea leaves. Working with us gives you access to insight that goes far beyond what other recruiters or origination partners can offer.
We do the right thing
It is said the good man “swears to his own hurt and does not change.” We are the first ones to walk away from a deal if it means doing what is best for the client or candidate. And our guarantee sticks.
We build deep relationships
Our clients and candidates have become some of our best friends, so it is natural that we view their businesses and their careers as our own.
We are SBA industry enthusiasts
