Allen & Overy to host 5th annual U.S. Leveraged Finance Training Camp virtually on October 21

On October 21, 2021, A&O will host its fifth annual U.S. Leveraged Finance Training Camp (LFTC), offering junior and mid-level banking and credit professionals an in-depth look at the fundamental concepts and documentation underpinning leveraged finance and private debt transactions, together with the latest legal and commercial developments in the market. 

This unique program, hosted by A&O’s New York-based leveraged finance team for emerging leaders in the industry, has become known as a best-in-class annual event, generating record-setting demand year after year.

Following the success of last year’s virtual program, we will once again broadcast LFTC live to a global audience including banks, private credit funds, private equity sponsors, corporates and other market participants. At present more than 1,000 people have registered from nearly 75 firms across four continents.

Presentations will be led by A&O partners and senior attorneys and will cover topics such as the anatomy of a leveraged capital structure, bridge to bond commitments, credit agreements, covenants and restructurings, among others. In addition, the program will address timely topics including the transition from LIBOR to SOFR and recurring revenue financings.

“LFTC has become an annual destination for our Lev Fin clients and friends of the firm, with attendance booming since we shifted to a virtual format. It’s a testament to the demand for high-quality training across the industry, and we’re proud to host such a unique program for emerging talent. It speaks to the reputation and profile A&O has achieved in the U.S. market,” said Todd Koretzky, a Leveraged Finance partner in our New York office and the lead partner for LFTC.

Jake Mincemoyer, Head of the firm’s U.S. Leveraged Finance Group, noted that “It’s only fitting for LFTC to reach a record audience this year given the growth of our U.S. team and the continued expansion of our practice across private credit and syndicated loans.”
