Business constantly evolves and
responds to new market conditions. Today, for a growing number of companies who
operate beyond traditional capital market structures, transferring risk is a
significant concern. Structured finance transactions, encompassing advanced
private and public financial arrangements, serve to efficiently refinance and
hedge profitable economic activity beyond the scope of conventional forms of
on-balance sheet securities. The complex drafting and implementation of
effective structured finance vehicles requires intimate knowledge, innovation
and breadth of experience.
Our work in this field extends to leasing,
equipment financing, asset-based lending and asset securitization, where we act
for financing companies, leasing companies, oil companies, banks, real estate
developers, manufacturers and energy companies. We advise on domestic and
cross-border funding structures, which involve alternatives to conventional
debt and equity financing. In addition, we advise on inter-corporate lending,
third-party lending, treasury derivative products, forward sales contracts and
commodity derivatives, particularly for crude oil, natural gas, electrical
power and petro-chemical products. Our experience extends to the purchase of
rolling stock, railcars, trucks, buses, and electrical power, gas processing,
petro-chemical, mining equipment and heavy construction equipment, through
lease or loan financing.
Most importantly, all of our advice comes from
an experienced group of lawyers with varied backgrounds, including those with
deep understanding of regulatory issues, tax law and accounting
