What We Do


Site Tools

With a team of experienced lawyers in key financial centers, the Finance group has long-standing relationships with leading global financial institutions and is involved in many of the largest and most complex financing transactions completed internationally.  We routinely handle cross-border financings, collaborate with our Capital Markets group to provide “one-stop shopping” for both bank and bond financings, and work closely with other practices to advise on the financing aspects of mergers and acquisitions, bankruptcies and restructurings, securities and other matters.

For example:

Bank of America, N.A. and Goldman Sachs Bank USA, as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners in connection with a $1.57 billion refinancing for J. Crew Group Inc., the retailer owned by TPG Capital and Leonard Green & Partners LP.

“‘Energetic,’ ‘creative,’ and ‘smart’ are just a few of the words that spring to mind when I think of the Finance Group. Our talented lawyers collaborate on some of the most complex, innovative transactions in the financing arena – and we genuinely enjoy our work.    ”
