Leveraged Finance

Weil's highly rated leveraged finance team has extensive experience with a wide variety of leveraged loans and high yield debt offerings. With dedicated teams located in many of the world's key financial centers, we can service virtually any aspect of a leveraged finance transaction on a global basis.
We offer unparalleled experience advising financial institutions, private equity sponsors, and corporate borrowers in connection with a wide variety of financing matters, from acquisition and recapitalization transactions, syndicated lending, and bridge financings to high-yield debt offerings, traditional private placements, and hybrid proprietary products.

We work closely with lawyers from our global M&A and Private Equity practices to advise clients on all facets of acquisition and other event-driven financing transactions. Our team also collaborates with our bankruptcy and restructuring practice and thus possesses unparalleled skills in restructuring and debtor-in-possession and exit financings, as well as the ability to analyze insolvency and collateral risks on new money transactions.
