Acquisition & Leveraged Finance
How we can help
We have played leading roles in most of the landmark leveraged buyout deals. These deals have involved various layers of debt and complex inter-creditor issues. We work with financiers, borrowers/acquirers, agents and arrangers alike.
At the forefront of innovative financing structures
We are known for our ability to develop innovative solutions, having advised on the first unitranche loan in Australia and since advised on the majority of such financings in the market. This follows a similar path forged advising on Term Loan Bs, which continue to increase in popularity. We also advised on the first such loan with 'Australianised' documentation, marking a full transition from NY law and residual language.
Understanding the motivations and strategies of the acquirers and the financiers
Our experience enables our clients to confidently navigate market terms, deal structures and ‘hot points’ which are often critical to the success of a bid. Our deal management approach ensures efficient service, a high degree of interaction and responsiveness to your needs.
The right team to support your needs
In a market that has been defined by an increase in the size and volume of deals, our strength lies in the size and depth of our leveraged finance team. Enhanced by preeminent mergers and acquisitions, private equity and tax specialists, and our international network through our alliance with Linklaters.
