I particularly enjoy the opportunity our practice affords to work with highly entrepreneurial individuals as they lay the building blocks for vibrant and sustainable businesses. It is especially rewarding to serve as a trusted legal adviser to those clients throughout the life-cycle of those businesses.
One of the interesting things about high yield is that it’s effectively consensual financing. Banks and issuers have interests that are generally aligned. A large part of the job is to help clients see the possibilities in a transaction and not make things unnecessarily adversarial.
I represent a wide variety of clients, but there’s one common theme among my best clients: creative, hard-working people who have a vision and the drive to make that vision reality. It’s fun to help clients like that realize the dream they’ve created from inception through the whole business life cycle.
After representing a company in an offering or other transaction, you often become a general resource for their ongoing legal needs and help quarterback the relationship. I love that collaboration and the feeling that I’m making a difference in helping a management team achieve its goals.
