Drafting for Corporate Finance: Concepts, Deals and Documents, Second Edition offers the legal, financial, business, accounting, and drafting information that lawyers must understand when it comes to corporate finance documentation, especially as it relates to debt. Drafting for Corporate Finance covers all the components of effective contract drafting, including:
  • contract structure, conditions precedent, representations and warranties, covenants and defaults
  • debt and lien, general business and financial covenants, and
  • amendment, control, and refinancing provisions.

The book includes tips for risk-based review of contracts to avoid compromising drafting errors, and best practice guidelines. It also provides an introductory overview of the players and the instruments that make up corporate finance, and explains corporate structure issues, commitments, conditions, pricing and risk, liquidity support and credit support. The book outlines the basic rules of bankruptcy, describes the practical details of how deals are done, and discusses opinion practice and post-closing contract interpretation. The scope of the book makes it useful not only for lawyers but for other junior corporate finance professionals in banking or working for companies.
