Martin LLP’s debt and equity finance attorneys represent commercial banks, direct lenders, corporate borrowers, private equity sponsors, portfolio companies, and individuals in debt financings and related corporate transactions.
In addition to legal and regulatory expertise, what makes Martin unique? First, as a focused, tightly-knit team, we provide a high level of coordination and smart, efficient execution. We can compare alternative approaches, adopt best practices and in general, align quickly and completely as a deal takes shape. Our attorneys work efficiently and professionally with other counsel, and outside professionals, just as they do with one another. This also allows us to capitalize on opportunities, and meet tight transaction timelines.
Second, because our attorneys typically have decades of experience in large, international firms in their background, we can offer both the ability to handle complex transactions, and a deep appreciation of simplicity. When appropriate, our clients benefit from the latest financing market trends and techniques — a particular advantage when, as now, finance markets are changing fast. We are experienced in crafting complex, innovative financing vehicles that help our clients create value other counsel may have missed. However, we are also keenly aware that the simplest financing solutions are often the most effective, and never embrace complexity for its own sake.
Because our clients include lenders, borrowers, and sponsors we are fully conversant with financing transactions from all perspectives. This enables us to anticipate regulatory and documentary requirements, identify and quickly resolve problems, focus on business-critical issues, and efficiently draft and negotiate complex documents. The result is timely, clearly drafted documents that accurately capture agreed business terms and reflect changes in law, institutional guidelines and market practices. Our goal is to keep your financing transaction moving to a timely closing in a manner that both achieves your objectives, and provides the protection you require.
