Position

Dewey Gonsoulin represents domestic and foreign lending institutions, money center banks, and regional banks in all types of financing transactions. These transactions range from basic forms of lending such as corporate and other working capital loans, revolving credit and letter of credit facilities, to complex financing structures such as syndicated loan transactions, acquisition loans, energy securitizations and project finance. Dewey focuses on energy finance, and has worked on credit facilities in the upstream energy sector for more than 20 years. These transactions include traditional borrowing base credit facilities provided by senior bank lenders to independent producers, as well as more complex off-balance sheet volumetric production payment transactions and hedging arrangements. He has also worked extensively on mezzanine loan and equity transactions for oil and gas producers. In addition to the upstream energy finance market, Dewey handles financing transactions in the oilfield service and midstream sectors of the energy industry. Dewey's broad experience acting as counsel to lenders allows him to effectively represent many of the firm's corporate clients in their financing transactions.
