I enjoy working with our clients to create practical and commercial solutions to efficiently close transactions.

Jonathan’s practice focuses on commercial and corporate finance transactions. He represents traditional and alternative lenders and agents in structuring, negotiating, and documenting domestic and cross–border loan arrangements, out–of–court restructurings, debtor–in–possession financings, and other credit arrangements. His experience includes cash flow finance, asset‑based finance, and acquisition finance (including sponsor–backed leveraged buyouts). Jonathan often advises on transactions that include multiple tranches of debt such as second lien, mezzanine, last–out, and unitranche loans, including the negotiation of complex intercreditor, subordination, and participation agreements. 

In addition to representing lenders and agents, Jonathan also counsels borrowers, including portfolio companies of private equity firms, in connection with their acquisition, working capital, and other credit facilities. He advises lenders and borrowers in a variety of industries, including technology, software, service, manufacturing, distribution, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, retail, restaurants, and private equity.
