Finance and Restructuring
As one of few boutique law firms, GOF also specializes on banking and finance law. We advise mid-cap and large companies, financial investors, banks and debt funds on all aspects relating to financing projects.
The structuring and implementation of acquisition financing is the core area of our consulting service. Senior-, second-Lien, mezzanine- and unitranche financing exemplifies our daily business. GOF is at the forefront of the LBO market practice and has a strong network with all essential market players. International aspects, e.g. regarding debt collateralization, are covered by our well-established network of partner firms around the world.
We advise banks and companies on general and special situation financings. This includes bilateral and syndicated credit financing (including promotional loans), promissory notes and private placements. We are seasoned experts in dealing with complex multi-source financings, refinancings and restructurings.
GOF also provides legal advice on other structured financing such as project, infrastructure, and real estate financing.
Through numerous successful transactions, GOF has a proven record of know-how and practical expertise in the restructuring of corporate- and LBO-financings. We advise all involved stakeholders in connection with the financial restructuring and aim to find suitable out-of-court solutions, as well as solutions using the framework of the German Insolvency Code (i.e. Schutzschirmverfahren).
