Our high yield team has been involved in the European market since its inception.
Our lawyers have led many of the deals that have shaped and continue to influence the direction of the European high yield market, including working on some of the biggest and most prestigious deals to come to the market since the beginning of 2000.
We combine our High Yield practice with our market-leading practices in banking and leveraged finance and debt capital markets. Our High Yield team also works closely with our corporate, restructuring and private equity groups. We believe this makes us one of the very few law firms that has the ability to cover all aspects of complicated leveraged finance high yield transactions and crossover and emerging markets high yield transactions.
Our combined bank/bond team can service all requirements in relation to high yield debt offerings, senior, second-lien, mezzanine and PIK debt, bridge-to-bond financings, bank/bond financings, securitisation take-outs, debt buy-backs and restructurings.
Our high yield and European debt capital markets practices integrate to cover crossover and emerging market credits. These deals can be governed by New York law indentures or English law trust deeds and/or executed following the eurobond or U.S. style offering paradigms.
