Welcoming Smridhi Gulati to Our Expanding Leveraged Finance & Private Credit Team

We are pleased to announce that partner Smridhi Gulati has joined our Leveraged Finance & Private Credit team in London.

Smridhi joins Cadwalader from Dechert in the latest in a series of high-profile additions to the practice. London partners Matthew Smith and Bevis Metcalfe joined in 2022, and a four-partner, U.S.-based team – Ronald Lovelace, Patrick Yingling, Jared Zajac and Joseph Polonsky – joined in January. Also recently joining the group in London was ESG Finance and Investment partner Sukhvir Basran and special counsel Andrew Vickers.

Smridhi advises private credit funds, banks, private equity sponsors and corporate borrowers on domestic and international leveraged and acquisition finance transactions. She also has considerable experience in executing and restructuring complex private credit transactions at all levels of the capital structure.

“Private credit is nimble, flexible and innovative and has filled the gap in lending caused largely by regulatory  constraints on traditional lenders," said London managing partner Greg Petrick. "In the wake of the pressure on banks given developments in March, we expect private credit to continue to garner significant market share in credit markets from corporates to real estate borrowers.” 

“I am thrilled to be joining the Cadwalader team in London,” Smridhi added. “Cadwalader is committed to building out a dominant private credit practice, and to be able to join forces with Matt and lead that growth together couldn't be more compelling or exciting for me.”
