Acting as a one-stop financing shop with a global arsenal of market-leading talent, we offer clients knowledgeable counsel on the full range of financial products, with a sophisticated understanding of local lending and capital markets. Our reputation and breadth of experience regularly place us at the top of the US private equity lending league tables.

Our team approach dedicates the same lawyers to the entire transaction life cycle, from running the debt commitment papers, to coordinating the finance-related provisions of the purchase agreement, to leading both the bank and bond financings, to advising the portfolio company post-closing and through the exit. We offer strategic advice on financing conditions, “certain funds” requirements, and commitment paper terms, giving clients a competitive advantage in an auction market. Working with colleagues across practices, we develop innovative structures to smoothly complete transactions.
