We work on financings across all levels of a company’s capital structure. Our team possesses an in-depth understanding of the covenants and intercreditor arrangements that must be addressed in structuring multilayered financings. In the case of high yield debt offerings, special skills are required to craft covenants that afford protection for investors while also providing issuers the flexibility to operate their businesses successfully.

We help clients by analyzing and structuring financing alternatives for highly complicated transactions across the entire spectrum of leveraged financing instruments, including:

  • Leveraged loans
  • High yield bonds
  • Mezzanine financings

Collaborating with clients, we are at the forefront of advising on evolving market terms and structures in this area.
