Transactional Finance

Our transactional finance lawyers represent lenders, borrowers, and debt investors in debt transactions. We handle syndicated, club, and bilateral facilities; leveraged and investment-grade financings; cash flow and asset-based transactions; first- and second-lien deals; senior secured and unsecured mezzanine financings; and front-end transactions. We guide clients through bankruptcies, workouts, restructurings, and debtor-in-possession (DIP) financings. Our clients are banks, hedge funds, business development corporations, and other investment vehicles; private equity funds and their portfolio companies; and corporate borrowers and investors.

With teams in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Hartford, London, Moscow, Frankfurt, Almaty, Beijing, Tokyo, and Dubai, we represent clients in debt financings around the globe. Our commercial work includes syndicated lending, leveraged and investment-grade financings, cash flow and asset-based financings, private note placements, and multicurrency and cross-border financings. In addition, our middle-market acquisition and leveraged finance practice represents major lenders and arrangers in first- and second-lien financings, senior secured and unsecured mezzanine financings, and first-out/last-out financings.
