Law360, Reuters, Bloomberg Law, Secured Finance Network and the New Law Journal were among the media outlets that covered McGuireWoods London partner Alan Holliday’s recent return to the firm’s Debt Finance Department.
Holliday focuses on cross-border debt finance and corporate law, with an emphasis on drafting and negotiating credit facility agreements for lenders and borrowers. He handles investment-grade, midmarket and mezzanine financings, including financings for mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructurings and real estate.
Holliday rejoins McGuireWoods after nearly five years as a senior legal officer at The Co-operative Bank PLC, where he advised on major commercial contracts and outsourcing arrangements, compliance with UK banking regulations and data protection legislation. He was with McGuireWoods’ debt finance practice from 2010 to 2018.
Holliday told Law360 that he chose to return to McGuireWoods because of his familiarity with the firm’s U.S.- and UK-based debt finance teams and because of the opportunity to expand the firm’s practice in London.
“The opportunity to be a part of McGuireWoods debt finance team was just too good to say no to,” Holliday said. “From my previous stint at McGuireWoods, I already knew the teams in London and the U.S. really well, and in addition to being excellent lawyers, they are great people. The warm welcome I have already received across the firm shows that I have made the right call.”
