Margaret Seurynck, Accomplished Finance Lawyer, Joins McGuireWoods in Chicago

February 19, 2019

McGuireWoods continues to grow its nationally recognized debt finance practice with the arrival of Margaret Seurynck, who brings more than 15 years of experience advising clients, including national and multinational banks and private equity firms, in complex financings.

Seurynck, who joins the firm’s Chicago office, represents lenders and borrowers in transactions such as secured and unsecured loans, asset-based and cash flow loans, and single-bank and syndicated credit facilities. She also handles structured finance arrangements, including structured note tax credit finance transactions and commercial paper programs.

Seurynck assists private equity firms and multinational corporations in financing aspects of M&A deals and regularly advises clients on sales of distressed commercial loans in the secondary market.

She comes to McGuireWoods from Jones Day, following the January addition of highly regarded finance partner Chris Molen, who joined McGuireWoods in Atlanta.

“Margaret’s impressive range of experience will be a tremendous asset, enhancing the market-leading service we deliver for financial institutions and private equity firms,” said Raj Natarajan, chair of McGuireWoods’ Debt Finance Department.

McGuireWoods’ debt finance practice is one of the largest in the United States, with more than 90 debt finance lawyers in the U.S. and London. The firm represents each of the top 10 U.S. banks ranked by assets and has handled domestic and cross-border commitments exceeding $150 billion in each of the past eight years. The firm has developed nationwide programs to bring together investors and companies seeking financing, including its annual healthcare-focused private equity, lending and finance conference, which begins Feb. 20 in Chicago.

“Margaret is an outstanding addition whose skill and insight strengthen our capabilities in Chicago and nationally,” said Christina Egan, managing partner of the firm’s Chicago office.

McGuireWoods was named 2019’s “Law Firm of the Year” for banking and finance law in U.S. News-Best Lawyers’ “Best Law Firms.” In addition, Law360 recently named the firm a “Banking Practice Group of the Year.” McGuireWoods consistently ranks among the top five U.S. law firms by deal count and among the top 10 by dollar volume in Thomson Reuters’ league tables.

“McGuireWoods is widely recognized as a national leader in delivering a full range of services to its financial industry clients and I am excited to join this accomplished team,” Seurynck said.
