DLA Piper hires real-estate finance specialist to finance and projects group
DLA Piper has appointed Paul Gray as a partner in the real-estate finance team, part of the finance and projects group. Gray has joined the firm’s London office from Sidley Austin, where he was a senior associate in the global finance group.
He specialises in highly leveraged real-estate and structured finance transactions but has a broad practice incorporating general banking, structured finance and capital markets transactions.
Gray also acts on the restructuring of existing leveraged loans (including securitised loans) and CMBS issuances (including synthetic CMBS).
His clients include private equity houses, hedge funds, institutional investors, banks and other financial institutions (including loan servicing companies). Gray’s representations are spread evenly along the capital structure, but he has particularly strong relationships with mezzanine finance providers.
