Daniel Hendon Proskauer Rose LLP

Focused almost entirely on private credit fund-related work, the ‘highly experienced and commercial’ team at Proskauer Rose LLP has developed a market-leading offering for very active funds, including Ares and Alcentra, which are appreciative of its ‘ability to know when to push and when not to push depending on deal dynamics and the counterparties involved’. Although mid-market financings remain the cornerstone of the practice, it has successfully followed its clients, some of which are writing increasingly bigger cheques to facilitate M&A extending into the upper-mid-market and beyond. This was recently exemplified by the ‘attentive and commercial’ Alexander Griffith‘s and Harriet West ‘s advice to Ares on the financing for the “take-private” acquisition by Epiris and Astorg of Euromoney Institutional Investor plc. Faisal Ramzan co-heads the team alongside Griffith and is noted for his expertise at handling complex domestic and cross-border transactions, often involving multiple tranches of debt. Daniel Hendon  is also recommended. Ben Davis joined Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP in July 2023.
