Corporate financing in Europe has been undergoing a significant transformation over the past few years. With increased regulatory and capital requirements putting pressure on banks’ balance sheets, alternative lenders have emerged with sophisticated and flexible solutions aimed at attracting borrowers. As a result, private credit has grown significantly in terms of the number and size of deals.
At Arendt, we have been involved in the growth of the debt fund industry since its inception. We recognise that debt funds operate differently from standard private equity funds, and the size of our firm has allowed us to create a special team dedicated to the structuring and operation of these funds.
Along with fund formation specialists and regulatory lawyers, we work closely with our tax and finance teams to advise on all aspects of underlying investments.
As an independent law firm, we have close contact with leading specialists in the jurisdictions where borrowers are located, critical to delivering a comprehensive and efficient service to our clients.
