“Sources have nothing but praise for the dedication and service that Slaughter and May provides in guiding clients through transactions: 'The team took the leadership on the legal front on making this facility agreement happen'”
Chambers UK, 2013
We regularly give legal advice on the financing for public takeovers, private acquisitions and asset purchases. This work is frequently complex, highly structured and leveraged, involving sophisticated inter-creditor and security sharing arrangements. This often requires our financing lawyers to work closely with our mergers and acquisitions lawyers and experts in other fields such as taxation, pensions and employment, competition, intellectual property and commercial real estate.
We represent a wide variety of clients in this area: industry buyers, venture capital and private equity funds, other types of equity investors, arrangers and providers of loan finance at the senior, mezzanine and subordinated levels and lead managers of high yield bonds.
