Commercial lending

Senior debt remains the most cost- and tax-efficient method of financing for our corporate borrowing clients even with current tax reform.

We work closely with our lending clients to make sure their customers receive a customized product that both protects the lender and provides sufficient flexibility for their customers. Our clients benefit from our bench strength and longstanding experience in lending matters. We understand what lenders require, and we have mutual respect for issues of both borrowers and lenders, allowing us to anticipate issues and handle matters in a cooperative fashion.

Our representation in commercial lending for corporate clients include:

  • Representation of a number of lending clients as co-lenders in several large corporate, syndicated loans to large, public company borrowers in amounts involving from $100 million to $3 billion
  • Representation of lender clients in connection with a comprehensive refinance of credit facilities extended to an ESOP in various types of businesses
  • Representation of a large private conglomerate with investment, manufacturing and distribution businesses in a number of related borrowing transactions in connection with the issuance and restructure of senior indebtedness
