Private Credit & Direct Lending

Our direct lending practice advises private credit funds, alternative capital providers, real estate investors and other alternative lenders on all aspects of direct lending. Our experience includes advising on the establishment of direct lending platforms, advising alternative lenders on lending transactions and acting for borrowers availing of finance from non-bank lenders.

Our experience includes advising on the full spectrum of private credit loans including senior and stretch-senior loans, unitranche loans, second lien loans, mezzanines loans and holdco loans.

Advising a broad array of private credit lenders in their lending transactions gives us a deep understanding of market-trends and how these products differ from traditional bank lending products.
