Overview

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.

Energy Focus

We advise 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. For borrowers our experience encompasses a full range of syndicated and structured financing options for both conventional and renewable/alternative energy projects.
