Our team is the author of Fund Finance Friday, the industry’s leading weekly Fund Finance market intelligence newsletter. Interested readers can subscribe here and can view prior editions of our newsletter at www.fundfinancefriday.com, our dedicated Fund Finance microsite.
We bring in-depth technical and commercial knowledge to a wide range of lending structures across the fund finance spectrum, including traditional capital call and subscription credit facilities, NAV-based facilities, hybrid facilities, open-end fund facilities, HNW facilities, aftercare facilities, umbrella facilities, management fee and GP lines, and an array of leveraged asset level, secondary fund and equity commitment transactions. The transatlantic nature of our team is a key asset to our clients in executing these transactions, many of which are cross-border and multi-currency and require counsel that is well-versed in the nuances of multi-jurisdictional and FX financings.
Clients benefit from the firm’s deep bench and multidisciplinary approach. Our global Fund Finance attorneys work seamlessly with lawyers from the firm’s other premier practice groups, including our financial regulation, ERISA, tax and investment management practices. We understand the evolving regulatory landscape, investor credit risks and related enforceability issues, emerging fund structures, and frequently advise on some of the most complex and bespoke transactions brought to market.
With a premier Fund Finance practice that has unparalleled experience advising on some of the largest and most sophisticated subscription and hybrid facilities ever consummated and key relationships that span the globe, our team is well suited to serve the needs of our clients.
