Debt Financing Transactions

Institutional clients have turned to Bass, Berry & Sims for representation in more than $40 billion of debt financing transactions in the last five years.

We have a comprehensive perspective on all aspects of debt financing garnered through a long history of representing both lenders and borrowers.
