Borrower Finance

We leverage our deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing borrowers to help them successfully execute debt financing across the capital structure – from private venture debt loans to large-cap syndicated credit facilities – while taking advantage of evolving trends and market opportunities.

Our global team advises corporations and sponsors around the world on all forms of debt financing, including domestic and cross-border financings, acquisition financings, high-yield offerings, direct lending facilities and ABL, as well as bilateral, syndicated and DIP credit facilities.

Additionally, our funds clients benefit from our vast private equity, securities and funds experience, which allows us to adeptly advise on financing needs, which include private note and mandatorily redeemable preferred stock issuances, subscription facilities and BDC credit facilities.
