G. Georgiev J. Hilson


General Course Description:

This course provides an overview of modern corporate finance transactions, including investment-grade debt, high-yield debt, leveraged buyouts, bank credit, and equity financings. These deal types represent a core practice area for transactional lawyers working with both small and large business entities. The course will take students through the various stages common to all corporate finance transactions, such as structuring, due diligence, and documentation. Students will become familiar with, and work on drafting and negotiating aspects of, underwriting agreements, indentures or credit agreements, prospectuses, security agreements, and other ancillary documents. The course thus provides an opportunity to acquire and apply advanced transactional skills such as structuring, drafting, negotiation, and client counseling in the context of corporate finance transactions. Grades will be based on written and in-class exercises and class participation.
