Morrison & Foerster’s finance team navigates complex financing matters for our clients. Our ability to stay at the forefront of change as the lending market evolves due to the increasingly complex global economy and regulatory lending environment differentiates our practice. Beyond our ability to assist clients with traditional banking and secured finance, we are leaders in developing innovative financing structures for specialized industries and representing clients in the growing private credit market.

Our work spans credit markets, industries, jurisdictions, and companies at all stages of the corporate lifecycle. Our clients include venture stage, middle market, and investment grade borrowers and financial sponsors, as well as global investment banks, business development companies, private equity funds, hedge funds, asset managers, venture debt funds, insurance companies, and other private credit providers. We have particularly deep experience in the healthcare and life sciences, energy, venture, private equity, and technology industries. We also frequently work with distressed companies in out-of-court restructurings and bankruptcy matters.

We provide our clients with the best suited transaction team in a way that is purposeful and efficient and we focus on closing deals with a practical and business-minded approach.
