Hogan Lovells International LLP’s banking and finance team benefits from the firm’s international network on one hand and from strong internal ties with various other practice groups on the other, allowing the team to handle the full spectrum of acquisition and real estate finance matters alongside trade and export finance work. This leads to a balanced client portfolio consisting of borrowers and lenders, including banks and various alternative lenders such as debt funds and insurance companies, while the team has also been increasingly active for French clients such as Société Générale, which is predominately due to the expansion of the firm’s Paris office. Recent significant matters include advising Grover on an asset-backed loan structure provided by Varengold Bank, assisting Ares Management, in co-operation with the London office, with corporate financing matters, and acting for Lang LaSalle in adjusting a multi-currency loan agreement with an international banking syndicate. Patrick Mittmann, who joined Baker McKenzie in September 2018, also advised Lang LaSalle on senior notes. In acquisition finance, team head Katlen Blöcker and members from the corporate practice assisted CTDI with financing issues concerning the acquisition of Communications Test Design’s EMEA repair services division. In late 2017, counsel Sven Seibold moved to DLA Piper.
