Within: Commercial lending

Few firms know the middle market as well as’ the ‘incredibly responsive’ team at Winston & Strawn LLP, which provides ‘excellent legal support’. The firm handles borrower and lender work, and is particularly well regarded in the latter where it represents banks and alternative lenders. Recent highlights include advising Barings Finance on a $218m loan to finance PDI TA Holdings’ acquisition of Professional DataSolutions. Other key clients on the lender side include Wells Fargo, which the firm advised on a $325m asset-based loan to Quikrete Holdings. The firm also represented Angelo, Gordon & Co in connection with senior credit facilities supporting the acquisition of Native Marine Produce & Speciality Foods by RLI Equity Partners and SJ Partners. William Brewer, Mats Carlston, Patrick Hardiman (‘a business savvy gem with a true inside perspective of the industry that is rare for an external lawyer’), and Ronald Jacobson (‘who knows the industry inside out’) jointly head the well-regarded team.
