Within: Commercial lending

Dechert LLP is recommended both for its lender-led expertise, where it acts for a range of institutions and alternate lenders, and for its borrower work. Scott Zimmerman leads the global leveraged finance team, which was bolstered in New York by the arrival of Jeff Norton from Linklaters LLP. He joins a team that includes the impressive Jay Alicandri, who is noted for advising borrowers and lenders, Jeffrey Katz and the Philadelphia-based Sarah Gelb. Borrower-led highlights included representing Mexican railroad giant GMexico Transportes on the $1.5bn financing for its acquisition of Florida East Coast Railway Holdings. On the lender side the firm represented ING Capital on $300m worth of facilities to Tree Line Capital Partners, a direct lender to small and medium-sized companies in the US. Another significant client on the direct lender side is Prospect Capital Corporation, which it advised on several transactions, including a $64m loan to finance ICV Partners’ acquisition of RME Group Holding Company.
