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.

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.
