Overview Press Room


Proskauer’s Finance Group focuses on leveraged finance, private credit, high-yield and distressed lending (including debtor-in-possession and exit financings). We have extensive experience across the market, with an emphasis on middle-market financings and large-scale leveraged buyouts.

Working from the firm’s offices in major financial centers around the globe, our deep team is positioned to represent clients on the ground in the U.S., Europe, Asia and South America. We often do so with our colleagues in industry-specific practices in health care; sports; technology, media and telecommunications; and lodging and gaming. And unlike many other firms, we represent both lenders and borrowers, instead of one or the other.

Our clients include:

  • Bulge-bracket, middle-market and boutique investment banks
  • Commercial banks
  • Business development companies
  • Hedge funds
  • Mezzanine funds
  • Specialty finance companies
  • Insurance companies
  • Small business investment companies
  • Distressed funds
  • Private equity funds
  • Other commercial borrowers

Our counsel and client service have earned wide recognition. Chambers USA, for example, has called us “a vibrant finance practice with excellent depth and breadth” and ranks our practice and individual lawyers as leaders in their fields. The Legal 500 United States has recognized our lawyers for their “unique combination of expertise and responsiveness” and “focus on problem solving,” and commended us for our “sophisticated practice” and “deep understanding of the market.” Chambers Global has cited our geographic footprint, noting our established U.S. platform, strong Latin America Group and growing Asia presence.
