Within: Bank lending: investment grade debt and syndicated loans

'Diligent, accessible and commercial¬†‚Äď from associate all the way up to senior partner',¬†Linklaters LLP¬†provides a 'uniformly high quality of work' to a balanced spread of banks¬†and borrowers on deals throughout the capital structure, including as it relates to general corporate lending, investment grade acquisition financing, margin lending and refinancings. Philip Spittal¬†heads up the global loans team and handles a range of syndicated deals relating to general corporate lending and M&A financing. He recently advised¬†the lenders and the security agent on a secured term loan facility to Sociedad Portuaria Terminal De Contenedores De Buenaventura, for the operation of a commercial container port terminal in Buenaventura, Colombia and for the refinancing of the borrower's existing debt from the project‚Äôs construction phase.¬†Toby Grimstone¬†regularly acts for banks and borrowers on syndicated and secured bank financings, with notable niche expertise in acquisition financing and commodities-related finance work (he is Glencore's go-to-adviser on its most complex financings). In addition to his margin lending expertise,¬†Oliver Edwards¬†also handles broader financing work for banks and corporates in the context of working capital facilities, as well as it pertains to event-driven transactions.¬†Ian Callaghan¬†continues to garner a strong reputation among corporates, banks and alternative credit providers on public and private acquisition financings and cross-border syndicated lending. Managing associate Caroline Courtney¬†is 'one to watch' and has developed a strong practice among¬†lenders, corporates and sponsors in event-driven acquisitions, investment grade facilities and direct lending.
