Mezzanine Finance

We have extensive experience in the origination, acquisition, disposition, restructuring, and enforcement of mezzanine debt and other high yield structures such as “B” notes, subordinate participations, and preferred equity. Having worked extensively with structured investments across all parts of the capital stack in both times of high growth and distress, we have the market perspective and practical experience to get real estate deals done for our clients. We have earned a particularly strong reputation in the area of intercreditor, co-lender and participation agreement structuring, negotiation and enforcement.

Our clients include leading investment funds, life insurance companies and other market participants.

Our lawyers are active in industry conferences, regularly moderating and participating in panel discussions regarding legal trends in the high yield space, including construction mezzanine lending.
