Representing debt and lease financing sources—including domestic and foreign banks; business development companies; leasing companies; insurance companies; investment banks; commercial finance lenders; mezzanine investors; factors and asset-based lenders—as well as the companies and funds that seek debt financing, requires significant resources and know-how. Cooley's Credit Finance attorneys have the expertise and experience necessary to tackle the complexities of appropriately structuring debt financing transactions in both domestic and cross-border transactions.
Our Credit Finance group offers a full range of debt and lease financing services and regularly guides clients in structuring loans and developing the appropriate documentation. In working with our clients, we find a team approach works best. Senior members of the Credit Finance practice head the client teams, drawing on their areas of expertise and, when necessary, coordinate with other Cooley attorneys experienced in tax, real estate, environmental law, workouts and restructurings, creditors' rights, bankruptcy, mergers and acquisitions, fund formation and other areas. This approach gives our clients a combination of integrated service from specialists and cost-effective legal representation.
