Banking and Finance

Lenders, investors, issuers, borrowers, underwriters and government authorities alike require legal counsel with the experience, business acumen and long-term perspective that can help address rapidly evolving challenges in the domestic and international public and private financial markets.

McGuireWoods LLP and its predecessor firms have provided counsel to banking and other financial institutions for many decades. Today, with over 100 lawyers in our core Banking and Finance group and approximately 45 lawyers in related practices, we have built on this legacy.

In the past decade alone, we have worked on domestic and cross-border commitments totaling more than $150 billion. As one of the largest finance law practices in the U.S. — and with lawyers practicing in Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and London — we regularly place within the “Top 10” rankings in Loan Pricing Corporation’s Law Firm League Table for deals by volume and by number. Our clients include many leading global banking and financial institutions, as well as the top 100 asset managers in the United States.

We regularly represent clients regarding asset-based lending, corporate and commercial lending, lease finance, project finance, public finance and syndicated finance transactions. Our range of services is broad, and we have significant depth in each of these concentrations, including unique experience in each client industry. For example, we have extensive experience in construction, consumer products, food and beverages, healthcare, sports, technology and telecommunications.

We are supported by a strong international tax practice, as well as lawyers from our creditors’ rights, environmental, ERISA, insurance, intellectual property, real estate and securities law practices. With access to these broad resources, as well as a network of professional advisors and consultants, we can quickly form client- and matter-specific teams that enable us to negotiate and close deals in a timely and cost-effective manner.
