2019 Up & Coming Attorneys: Alison Bure

Alison Bure, a lawyer in Faegre Baker Daniels finance and restructuring group, has closed billions of dollars’ worth of deals.

Describing herself as “inherently driven,” the Faegre associate closed $10 billion in deals before she left for the office one morning, one partner said.

Bure, who joined the firm in 2012, serves in a leading role on legal teams representing many of the firm’s significant clients, including banks and other financial institutions, public and private companies, and Indian tribes in connection with secured and unsecured debt financings, securitizations, private equity investments, and other complex commercial finance transactions.

Bure is a board member of the Minnesota Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, where she has volunteered for more than a decade. “I have a close family connection with cystic fibrosis,” Bure said. “Finding a cure is probably my biggest life dream.”

Through her pro bono work with local organizations including the Advocates for Human Rights, the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota and WomenVenture, she has benefited local clients. As part of a legal team that partnered with Advocates for Human Rights to travel to Africa to promote human rights, her pro bono work has had a global reach as well.

Bure, who has a law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School, always knew she wanted to be a lawyer. She balanced law with an undergraduate degree in finance and investment banking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, influenced in part by her love of math and her observations of her father’s business career.
