Cadwalader today announced that Kurt T. Oosterhouse has joined the firm as a partner in its finance practice, resident in its Charlotte, NC, office.
Oosterhouse represents financial institutions and corporate clients in syndicated senior debt facilities, asset-based lending and leveraged acquisition financing. He has a broad range of experience in a number of fields, including healthcare, middle market, investment grade and real estate investment trusts. Oosterhouse also counsels clients across a wide spectrum of fund finance lending structures, including subscription credit facilities and fund-level credit enhancement.
“Kurt has established an outstanding reputation in the banking community in Charlotte and nationwide,” said Cadwalader managing partner Pat Quinn. “We’re very fortunate to have him join our finance team.”
William McInerney, chair of Cadwalader’s Finance Practice, said, “Kurt’s arrival underlines our commitment to expanding our corporate finance practice. We have significant US and international finance capabilities, and Kurt now brings us additional capabilities in middle-market lending, a real focus for us going forward.”
Added Stu Goldstein, co-chair of Cadwalader’s Capital Markets practice and managing partner of the firm’s Charlotte office, “Kurt is an outstanding lawyer who provides exceptional counsel to his clients. We are confident he will contribute to the continued growth and diversification of our practice and will be an exceptional resource for all of our clients.”
Prior to joining Cadwalader, Kurt was a member/partner with Moore & Van Allen. His previous experience also includes advising clients on international commercial transactions in Europe.
“I know from first-hand experience the excellence that Cadwalader brings to every transaction and the firm’s leading reputation in the industry,” Oosterhouse said. “My move to Cadwalader will be very good for my clients, and I look forward to introducing my new colleagues’ expertise to my clients.”
Oosterhouse’s arrival is a continuation of Cadwalader’s strategy of bolstering key practices. In recent weeks, partner Peter Morreale joined the Capital Markets practice in Washington, DC, and partner David Teigman joined the firm in New York in the Executive Compensation & Employee Benefits practice.
