Morgan Lewis’s banking lawyers represent some of the world's leading financial institutions in their lending activities worldwide. Sometimes our client will be acting alone but more often will be acting as an agent for a syndicate of lenders. Transactions may be secured by intellectual property rights, healthcare receivables, marketable securities, ships, or more conventional collateral, or they may be unsecured.
Our attorneys are particularly focused on those industries and types of transactions that require special skills or present unique structural obstacles to be surmounted. We are recognized leaders in financing for specialty areas as diverse as entertainment and shipping. We are equally at home handling a simple working capital revolver or the financing for a multibillion dollar hostile takeover.
Our clients value our advice as creative problem solvers throughout all phases of the credit process, from preliminary structuring to workout and bankruptcy, if necessary. Our ability to appreciate the business realities facing our clients enables us to apply our legal knowledge in a way that is always results-oriented, whether that means delicately negotiating through the minefields of inter-creditor relationships or carefully analyzing the constraints imposed by government regulations or existing contracts.
