Today's lenders and borrowers face a myriad of challenges, including restrictions on foreign banks lending to companies in certain jurisdictions, distressed debt and increasing complexity of financial services regulation across the world. With most financing transactions that involve global companies requiring execution in more than one jurisdiction, and local law requirements posing challenges that can significantly affect deal value, it is crucial that their lawyers can navigate them through this complex environment.
