The Experience to Pioneer

The Experience to Pioneer

The Private Credit Group is a unique middle market finance practice with a large team of lawyers based in key financial centers in New York, London, Los Angeles and Boston. Our breadth and diversity is unmatched in the industry. We have consistently closed more than 150 deals a year, which provides us with a keen insight into market trends in deals of all sizes, structures and industries.

Our technical strength, combined with our expansive experience, makes us the firm of choice for first-in-kind transactions. We have developed innovative structures such as upside-down unitranches and synthetic mezzanine and have migrated the bifurcated unitranche into the European market. For more than 20 years, we have been active in the market and participated in the evolution of a number of credit products, including senior-stretch loans, unitranche loans, second lien loans and secured mezzanine.
