Leveraged & Acquisition Finance

Overview

Fast-paced and sophisticated, emerging and ever-evolving trends dominate the leveraged and acquisition finance market. Sponsors and borrowers continue to search for optimum flexibility and documentary terms converge ever closer with the more borrower-friendly US markets. Whatever the intended debt structure, it is important to manage the debt raising process carefully.

With a proven track record in the leveraged finance market, we have an excellent knowledge of current market best practice. Fluent in nuanced technical and documentary points, we execute transactions smoothly and efficiently with a minimum of fuss.

Working closely alongside our award-winning Private Equity & Financial Sponsors and Corporate M&A teams, we advise on the financing of transformational investments and acquisitions through to smaller bolt-ons. A proactive and integrated approach means we also regularly draw on further specialist advice from across Travers Smith to provide the best advice in an efficient and co-ordinated manner.

In addition to advising prominent private equity and financial sponsors and corporate borrowers, we have also developed a significant lender-side practice. This balance enables us to rapidly identify the key legal and commercial points on any transaction, resulting in our clients receiving pragmatic and workable solutions.

For borrowers at the upper end of the mid-market, there remains the ability to tap the high yield market. Much of our work has an international component and through our strong relationships with US law firms, we are able to seamlessly incorporate high yield solutions into our advice.
