Mezzanine Lending

The regulatory requirements and restrictions imposed upon financial institutions have created the need — and the opportunity — for mezzanine financing to bridge the gap between equity investments and the funding that can be provided by traditional lending sources.

Troutman Sanders’ finance attorneys have extensive experience in matters related to subordinated and mezzanine financing, the interplay between senior and mezzanine financing, and the intercreditor issues and business issues associated with these types of transactions. We draw on our collective knowledge to provide comprehensive advice to agents, senior lenders, mezzanine lenders, borrowers and other clients on equity-level financings for corporate financial transactions and for real estate finance transactions, and to close these deals in an effective and efficient manner.
