S&C's private credit practice leverages the resources of its market-leading Credit & Leveraged Finance practice and delivers exceptional results for all types of private credit providers, including business development companies (BDCs), debt funds and pension funds.
Our lawyers have deep market knowledge and an understanding of all debt products. Unlike most firms, each partner in the private credit practice works across the full range of debt products, including secured, unsecured and subordinated term loans, mezzanine debt, unitranche and multi-tranche facilities, and revolving credit facilities. With practitioners in the U.S., Europe and Asia-Pacific S&C is able to offer its private credit clients an integrated, global platform.
The partners in the private credit practice also have deep experience working on concurrent equity investments that are often key components of a private credit transaction. We work on private credit transactions across the credit spectrum, ranging from acquisition financings to recapitalizations to restructurings and distressed situations.
