For many years, our banking lawyers have acted for sponsors and lenders on acquisition financings, and have been integral to the development of the global leveraged finance market.
We advised on many of the largest pre-recession transactions, with clients on both the creditor and debtor sides. Since then, we have been at the cutting edge of developments in the market, across the full range of products in the capital structure.
We understand how these products operate – and how they sometimes fail to operate. We also appreciate the different approaches and commercial imperatives of lenders, borrowers and investors in the current credit situation.
Our team has recently worked on some of the most complex new money deals coming to market. We have also recently advised various sponsor clients on a number of market-leading bank/bond financings, as well as working with lenders on sophisticated refinancing transactions, so are ideally placed to advise all parties on how best to achieve a successful solution.
We remain at the forefront of developments around pre-IPO/rights issue financings and public to private transactions.
