We are at the sharp end of market developments

Our team of German, English and New York law qualified debt finance lawyers is at the sharp end of market developments.

Close co-operation within our corporate and tax practice gives us competitive edge when structuring transactions and our strength has been cited on a number of occasions, giving clients further confidence in our capabilities.

Our focus

Our sector knowledge and understanding of clients’ business strategies enable us to get to the heart of the rationale for every debt package we advise on. Lenders and sponsors/borrowers need to structure deals to suit market conditions and our lawyers are well versed in all forms of leveraged financing.

Our international network allows us to build a multi-jurisdictional leveraged debt team with an extensive European and U.S. capital markets capability. We have experts in all major jurisdictions and offer specialised high yield advice - a key service for those wishing to exploit new market opportunities.
Consequently, we provide clients with a full service: senior, second-lien, mezzanine and payment-in-kind (PIK) debt, bridge-to-bond financings, bank/bond financings, high-yield debt offerings, securitisation take-outs and debt buy-backs and restructurings.
