Debt Finance

Overview

Our experience in the Debt Finance Practice includes the structuring, negotiation and documentation of acquisition loans, mezzanine financings, term and revolving credit facilities, working capital loans, mortgage warehousing loans, senior and subordinated debt instruments, project financing, asset securitization transactions and real estate financing transactions. These matters include single bank and multiple bank facilities, syndicated loans, first and second lien facilities, bank agency issues and letter of credit financing. Our work also regularly includes the representation of clients engaged in a variety of lease financing arrangements, including capital lease programs, leveraged leases and synthetic leases.

We also have extensive experience in negotiating intercreditor agreements, subordination agreements and security documents and in the creation and perfection of liens and security interests in all manner of collateral under the Uniform Commercial Code and other applicable state and federal laws governing secured transactions (including security interests in intellectual property, in non-UCC collateral and other collateral governed by federal law).

Our finance lawyers work closely with lawyers in our other practice areas, particularly in the insolvency and intellectual property areas, in these matters.
