Investing in junior capital – mezzanine debt, second-lien, uni-tranche and multi-tranche debt, structured debt-equity investing, equity co-investments, preferred stock, and similar financings – requires a multi-disciplinary legal team.
Whether the capital is being deployed as part of an acquisition, a dividend recap, growth capital or a workout or bankruptcy, our Junior Capital group has the ability to structure and manage all aspects of the transaction as well as anticipate potential tax, ERISA, regulatory, restructuring and inter-creditor issues.
The members of our Junior Capital group have deep experience in traditional commercial lending as well as private equity, venture capital and mergers and acquisitions. This multi-disciplinary team includes support from our Tax, ERISA and Bankruptcy & Restructuring groups.
As a result, we provide the breadth of experience needed to understand the risks of this complex market and to structure these investments to meet the needs of our individual clients. Examples illustrating our track record in this field include advising institutional and debt fund investors in mezzanine debt financings, equity co-investments, second-lien facilities, and much more.
