Providing leading M&A services, we have an associated reputation for advising on all aspects of acquisition and leveraged finance.
We advise on mainstream corporate leveraged financing on both the bank and borrower side, with expertise in syndicated multi-creditor structures and construction financings. We advise on structures and issues relating to taking security over assets, including shares, limited partnership interests and other forms of equity interests. We have a powerful borrower-side practice where we act for both private equity and hedge funds. These transactions often have several layers of financing, including debt securities (often listed), senior secured credit facilities (commonly syndicated), mezzanine and junior debt. In many cases the financing goes beyond funding for the acquisition into finance for expansion or investment, working capital and trade finance, such as guarantee or letter of credit facilities.
