Financings & Structured TransactionsPDF
Morris Nichols advises clients on an array of financing transactions—from secured or unsecured loans, to leveraged recapitalizations, securitizations and other types of structured financings. We represent all parties in these deals, including borrowers, lenders, corporate trustees, underwriters, and collateral agents.
We regularly provide advice in drafting the terms of the financing documents, including indentures, credit documents, mortgages, security agreements, preferred stock designations, and ancillary documents such as registration rights agreements, stock purchase agreements, and voting agreements.
As a leader in Delaware corporate law, we have a deep understanding of the fiduciary obligations of boards of directors under the state’s statutes. We work with boards in meeting those obligations, as well as evaluating and approving financing transactions brought to them for review. That seamless advice offers a unique value and enhances efficiency in successfully closing financing deals.
