ACQUISITION/LEVERAGED FINANCE - TOP N.Y. FIRM x2
Our client is consistently recognised as having one of the leading leveraged / acquisition finance practices; they regularly advise private equity and fund sponsors, corporate borrowers and lenders in both public and private leveraged and acquisition financings. In addition to leveraged finance, a substantial part of the group's practice comprises investment grade finance, restructuring, receivables financing, project finance and advising on "alternative" funding techniques, including total return swaps, credit default swaps and repurchase agreements.
An enthusiasm to broaden established skills along with flexibility and an ability to think outside the box in structuring deals, identifying and solving challenges in a transaction are important qualities that the group look for in their lawyers. The practice's sweet spot is in the more intellectually stimulating and challenging forms of finance rather than "cookie-cutter" type work.
The team in London works closely with the finance practices in the other offices around the world, primarily the US, Germany and HK.
The banking teams across the firm regularly works alongside the high yield practice (eg. on a bank bridge to a HY exit or the provision of a SSRCF sitting alongside a HYB). Consequently, members of the London banking team become quickly very knowledgeable about High Yield financing structures and techniques (which increasingly inform the terms of European financings).
The new hire will join the banking group in London where you will undertake a wide variety of work reflecting the spectrum of the group's practice. Working within a small and close-knit team, you will have the chance to work on market leading, high profile, cross-border transactions, advising both financial institutions and borrower clients from around the world. You will be regularly exposed to clients from the start and will be encouraged to market to those clients to build the firm's relationship.
