Equity Sponsor Finance

Sheppard Mullin finance attorneys have extensive experience in credit transactions involving private equity sponsors. Such matters include acquisition financings, leveraged and management buyouts, recapitalizations, consolidation financings, mezzanine debt (frequently with an equity component) and traditional commercial lending arrangements. Our clients have been sole lenders, administrative agents (with lender syndicates including two to as many as twenty members), and equity participants in such transactions. Attorneys in several of the firm's other practice areas are frequently part of the "team", including attorneys in our real estate, securities, environmental, tax and benefits and bankruptcy practice groups. Transaction size with respect to senior debt financings ranges from $20,000,000 to over $200,000,000 and these transactions frequently involve multiple credit providers and the negotiation of appropriate subordination and intercreditor arrangements.
