View Mezzanine Lending

Thompson & Knight represents lenders in transactions with credit risks that justify higher returns than those available in the bank market, such as senior "unitranche," second lien, and subordinated debt facilities. Collateral security and bankruptcy structuring are extremely important to these clients, and our lending lawyers work closely with our bankruptcy, oil and gas, tax, and real estate lawyers to develop tailored transaction structures to provide maximum protection for our clients. We also work closely with out private equity colleagues when these transactions call for equity kickers or other equity features. All of these skills and experience also serve clients who are borrowers in mezzanine loan transactions.
