Chapman and Cutler LLP’s broad experience and distinguished history in private and public finance and securities law are the foundation of its work in the complex area of secondary market transactions and secondary trades. The firm represents both purchasers and sellers (including intermediary purchasers/sellers) of debt and equity securities of distressed and non-distressed issuers, including investment grade and non-investment grade debt, real estate-backed and other secured securities, credit tenant loans, leveraged leases, synthetic leases and CAPCO securities.

Chapman and Cutler's extensive experience with initial issuances provides a level of proficiency that is essential when evaluating transactions being sold in the secondary market.

At Chapman and Cutler, we understand the importance of the secondary market as not only a vehicle for an investor’s exit from a credit, but also as a primary source of new investments.

Practice group attorneys involved with secondary market trade matters are well versed in the intricacies and nuances of the underlying transaction documentation, which leads to the expedient execution of these secondary trades.

In the distressed market, our attorneys counsel clients regarding so-called “big boy” provisions and other issues unique in the context of distressed issuers.
