Financial Institutions

For agent banks and individual commercial lenders, we structure, document and negotiate domestic and international secured and unsecured finance transactions – both committed and uncommitted – including workouts and restructurings. Our expertise includes asset-based lending, international commodities finance, acquisition finance, private equity finance, margin lending and hedge fund lending, as well as distressed debt trading, swaps (including ISDA master agreements and related documentation), receivables purchase transactions (including supply chain finance), draft discounting transactions, commodity repurchase transactions and letter of credit transactions. Of course, our attorneys have significant experience handling complex intercreditor issues and agreements.

International Trade Finance

Our attorneys are unparalleled at handling international trade finance deals for banks and financial institutions around the world. Whether involving precious or base metals, agricultural products or energy products, our lawyers understand the commodities industry and the discreet but critical issues applicable to our clients’ interests.

Mortgage Lending

We routinely represent our clients in the mortgage lending industry in their mortgage servicing rights (MSR) financings and mortgage warehouse facilities, as well as their acquisition and related financings.

Private Equity Finance, Acquisition Finance and Corporate Representation

In addition to our representation of banks and financial institutions, we regularly manage, structure and negotiate a broad array of multi-faceted complex syndicated and bilateral credit facilities established to finance acquisitions by our private equity firm clients of public and private companies in various industries. Our representation on all finance matters continues post-acquisition as counsel to the acquired entities.
