As advisors on financing, our lawyers negotiate and document a range of transactions, including corporate lending, commercial lending, asset-based lending, reserve-based lending, letters of credit facilities, leasing transactions, structured finance, project finance, DIP financing, real estate finance, mezzanine and other subordinated debt financing, and all other areas of finance transactions. Further, we provide all of the necessary due diligence to evaluate risks and to balance business, operational, and legal needs.
Our attorneys regularly advise clients on routine transactions where controlling costs are essential. We also handle sophisticated financing arrangements, including:
- Complex subordination and inter-creditor issues.
- Business combinations and transactions that require special financing, including joint ventures, product and technology licensing, distributorship arrangements, leveraged leasing, and synthetic leasing.
- All aspects of real estate finance, including traditional mortgages, development and construction loans, and commercial property acquisitions.
Our multidisciplinary approach brings together as needed lawyers in areas such as tax, securities, employee benefits, real estate, environmental, and corporate law. Should workout or restructuring become necessary, our deep litigation and bankruptcy teams have substantial experience representing the needs of both creditors and debtors.
Recent transactions have included representing domestic and international agents/lenders and domestic and international borrowers in industries ranging from oil and gas to utilities, chemicals, vessel maintenance, telecommunications, and convenience stores.
Our Energy Focus
We have advised banks on financing pipelines, offshore production platforms, and oil and gas properties, and have been especially active in advising various foreign and domestic banks as agents in syndicated reserve-based credit facilities. And for industry borrowers our experience encompasses a full range of syndicated and structured financing options for both conventional and renewable/alternative energy projects.
