Multi-Currency/Cross Border Financings

As businesses have adapted to a global economy, financing transactions have grown more complex with transactions structured across many countries and in many currencies. Our attorneys, recognizing our client’s needs for advice on these complicated matters, have worked to develop deep experience in structuring and documenting multi-currency loan facilities and cross border financings on a secured and unsecured basis.

We have helped arrangers, agent banks, and lenders structure, negotiate, and document complicated multi-currency subscription-secured facilities with domestic and international borrowers.
