Sponsor Finance


We are a go-to adviser to financial sponsors, who rely on the depth and breadth of our practice for the full range of their financing needs.


Our dedicated sponsor finance team helps clients navigate the entire LBO life cycle, from investment to exit and every step in between. We are also well versed in fund-level facilities that help our clients maximize operational flexibility and investor returns. Our deep experience with complex capital structures, demanding timelines and a wide range of industries – including Healthcare & Life Sciences, Sports and Tech, Media & Telecom – enables us to deliver exceptional results regardless of the circumstances.

Financial sponsors count on our exemplary counsel across syndicated, direct, unitranche, bridge and asset-based loans, as well as club deals, structured products, and project, infrastructure, DIP and exit financings.

As part of Davis Polk’s interdisciplinary Private Equity practice, we work closely with colleagues including our Mergers & AcquisitionsCapital MarketsTax and Restructuring teams.
