Direct Lending & Private Credit

The global direct lending and private credit market is growing at a rapid pace, and Canada is no exception. Direct lending has become a mainstream form of financing, providing access to funding for strategic business transactions, growth opportunities and major projects. While the traditional lending market remains strong, the flexibility of private credit is opening up new possibilities.

At Blakes, our multidisciplinary team of Financial Services lawyers assist all kinds of direct lenders, borrowers, sponsors and other market participants on private credit and alternative financing transactions. These transactions include senior secured facilities, mezzanine financings, convertible debt financings and debtor-in-possession facilities.

Blakes has one of the leading banking and finance practices in Canada, which leverages our national team’s extensive knowledge and experience and advise local and international clients on market developments and innovative financing transactions. We also collaborate with our M&A, Restructuring & Insolvency and Private Equity groups to provide lender and borrower clients with strategic and focused representations adapted to their needs.
