Press Release

Haynes Boone Lawyers Author Chapters in Fund Finance 2023

January 24, 2023

Haynes and Boone, LLP lawyers Ellen McGinnis, Richard Anigian, Emma Russell, Emily Fuller, and Deborah Low contributed to Global Legal Insights’ “Fund Finance 2023,” produced in partnership with the Fund Finance Association (FFA).

This seventh edition of the book covers legal trends and developments in the greater fund finance markets and gives law firms, financial institutions, funds and investors comprehensive insight into 19 global jurisdictions.

Haynes Boone lawyers authored two chapters.

McGinnis, partner and co-chair of the firm’s Fund Finance Practice Group, teamed with Anigian, partner and past chair of the firms’ Litigation Department, to author a chapter titled “Analysis of Lender Remedies Under U.S. Law in Subscription-Secured Credit Facilities.” The chapter suggests lenders must have a sound understanding of their legal rights for enforcing remedies against a borrower and its limited partners under a subscription-secured credit facility in order to assess risk, price the risk, and properly document the facility.

Russell, partner and head of the Finance Practice Group in the London office, teamed with Fuller to author a chapter titled “Comparing the European, U.S. and Asian Fund Finance Markets,” which considers the differences between the European, U.S. and Asian approach to fund finance, both from a high-level market perspective and the contrasting nuances of transactions. Low, a partner in Haynes Boone’s New York office, contributed to the chapter.
