Briggs and Morgan has an active and strong practice representing providers of mezzanine debt and junior capital, including private equity funds, small business investment companies (SBICs) and other lenders and investors. The attorneys in our Mezzanine Finance practice understand our clients’ business and are able to leverage their vast experience in structured finance transactions, including more than 75 mezzanine finance transactions since 2010, to partner with our clients to effectively and efficiently structure deals in a practical, solution-oriented manner.

Having represented some of the most active and sophisticated private equity funds in the industry, we are able to provide our clients with market perspective on the latest issues in mezzanine finance transactions, including structuring co-investments with equity sponsors and negotiating subordination and intercreditor agreements on terms that are favorable to our clients. We also regularly advise our mezzanine finance clients in connection with participations, assignments and dispositions of their investments, regulatory compliance (including compliance with VCOC and SBA regulations) and the issues that arise in the event of a borrower’s bankruptcy or default.

The lawyers in our Mezzanine Finance practice group are also active in the firm’s Private Equity, Finance, Bankruptcy and Merger and Acquisitions practices, and as part of a full-service firm are able to draw on the expertise of other Briggs and Morgan lawyers in our Commercial Lending, Tax, Employment, Labor and Benefits, and Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring practices. This breadth of experience offers the practical and technical capabilities to get deals done efficiently and achieve our clients’ business objectives.
