Profile

Ben Baldwin's practice covers a broad range of corporate finance and commercial transactions with an emphasis on lending and mergers and acquisitions. He has extensive experience representing banks in senior loan transactions and mezzanine and private equity funds in subordinated debt and equity investments, including the negotiation of intercreditor agreements. He has also represented public and private companies as borrowers in a broad array of finance transactions. Ben has advised corporations and LLCs in a variety of commercial and corporate matters, including organizational issues; shareholder and operating agreements; capital and debt structures; joint ventures; corporate governance issues, including with respect to minority ownerships disputes; and general contractual matters.

Ben has worked closely with a mezzanine fund on several of its portfolio company investments, from the initial structurings and closings of the investments through the final dispositions — including, in some cases, the distress workouts — of the investments. He has also represented an owner of a portfolio of cemeteries and funeral homes in the Southeast and has handled that client's acquisitions, dispositions and financings.
