Stevens & Lee represents a wide variety of capital providers in connection with the structuring, negotiating and documenting of local and regional credit transactions. Our practice originated and has thrived with our representation of large regional and mid-sized commercial bank and thrift institutions. Although we continue to represent these types of institutions, as the capital markets have changed over the years, we have expanded our representation to include both in-market and out-of-market asset-based lenders, commercial finance companies, venture capital firms, insurance companies, pension funds and various private sources of capital.
The transactions for which we are engaged vary greatly in size and complexity. Most of our experience, however, is concentrated in multi-million dollar credit facilities with a high level of complexity. Through our diverse experience, we have developed expertise in many fields, such as industrial development bond financing, foreign currency lending, loans to Employee Stock Option Plans and loans to companies engaged in various industries, including the health care, public utility, apparel, retail and importing industries, as well as troubled companies and debtors-in-possession.
