Acquisition and Leveraged Financing

Our acquisition and leveraged finance team is highly experienced in advising on structures involving British Virgin IslandsCayman Islands, IrishJersey or Luxembourg entities.  In particular we advise on issues relating to taking security over assets, including shares, limited partnership interests and other forms of equity interests issued by British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Irish, Jersey or Luxembourg vehicles. 

In Ireland we advise on mainstream corporate leveraged financing on bank and borrower side, with particular expertise in syndicated multi-creditor structures, and construction financings.

We have strong links with virtually all of the major US and UK law firms who lead on private equity and hedge fund leveraged finance transactions.  On the lending side we have excellent relationships with most of the investment and commercial banks that provide finance in this area.

In addition, due in part to the strength of our leading investment funds team and our team based approach, the global finance team has a powerful borrower-side practice where we act for both private equity and hedge funds.
