The Derivative Products Practice

Banks, investment managers, funds, insurance, pension and other institutional investors utilize derivative products to hedge a broad range of market risks. These clients rely on experts to advise, structure and private swaps, collars, options, currency forward purchase contracts, repurchase agreements and participation agreements, as well as synthetic securities and exchange-traded contracts, to hedge currency, commodity price and interest rate risks. Our clients increasingly require negotiation and documentation of customized agreements and industry standard dealer agreements in their hedging activities.

The Mezzanine/Private Equity/High Yield Practice

Today's mega-sized acquisitions and buy-out transactions require multilayering of debt and equity investments. This investment-focused practice of the Corporate Finance Group offers in-depth experience at each stage of the development process, from "angel" investment for seed capital, through second and third equity raises and pre-public offering mezzanine lending and investment, to mature "club deal" private equity recapitalization, buyouts and leveraged acquisitions. Corporate Finance experts work with venture capital and private equity servicers, funds and investors in their investments and portfolio companies in their organizations, add-on acquisitions, roll-up programs, public and private equity offerings and debt placements.

The firm also represents the users of capital, representing a myriad of start-ups and mature companies in their negotiations with investors in connection with working capital, bridge and acquisition investments. Our attorneys often negotiate the unwinding of burdensome, preexisting investment structures. Recently, one of our attorneys successfully restructured the accelerated, outstanding "death spiral" preferred stock issued by a public company client, thereby rescuing a life-preserving merger with another public company.

High yield investments enable highly leveraged transactions by spreading credit risk with hybrid, noninvestment grade securities sold in the private or public markets. Our high yield practitioners counsel issuers, underwriters, placement agents, purchasers and advisors in the most involved high yield financing transactions. Our attorneys focus beyond traditional interest rate setting issues to structure and document redemption, covenant, market-influenced terms and other provisions that increasingly impact success or failure in the public or private markets.

The Asset-Based Finance Practice

Thorough documentation, monitoring and financial reporting are crucial to successful asset-based or collateral-based financing. The Corporate Finance Group provides clients in this market the experience necessary to successfully structure, negotiate, document and restructure asset-based finance transactions. We also deliver concise, definitive advice to asset-based borrowers in the administration of complicated credit arrangements, including ever-present intercreditor and subordination issues.
