Mayer Brown announced today that Beth Vogel has joined the firm in its Chicago office as a partner in the Banking & Finance practice, continuing the growth of the firm’s Global Private Credit group. Ms. Vogel joins from Jones Day.
“Beth’s extensive experience working on large international leveraged finance transactions for both borrowers and lenders, with a particular focus on bifurcated ABL financings, will help us continue to expand our leveraged finance and ABL offerings,” said Paul Jorissen, co-leader of Mayer Brown’s global Banking & Finance practice. “We look forward to drawing from her tremendous knowledge to advise our clients in Chicago and around the world that are taking on challenging transactions.”
Ms. Vogel has considerable experience representing lenders, borrowers and private credit funds in a variety of transactional and commercial financing-related matters. Ms. Vogel regularly advises clients on senior secured and unsecured credit facilities, unitranche and other one-stop financings. Her experience includes second lien transactions, chapter 11 debtor-in-possession and exit financings as well as infrastructure financings. In the private-public partnership market for infrastructure, Ms. Vogel has represented major financial institutions on all aspects of debt financing.
“Mayer Brown’s long history in lending and market leading finance practice, combined with its capabilities in other transactional practice areas that touch on private credit funds, make it a compelling fit for my practice,” said Ms. Vogel.
“In recent years, Mayer Brown has made a concerted effort to respond to client demand in the private credit arena in Chicago and globally,” added Rebecca Eisner, the partner-in-charge of Mayer Brown’s Chicago office. “Beth’s arrival signals our ongoing growing commitment to enhance the depth of offerings to our bank and private credit providers, and we are delighted to welcome her to the firm.”
The firm recently added a group of leveraged finance partners, including Scott Zemser, Matt O’Meara, Stuart Brinkworth and Jaime Gatenio, among others. Building on the momentum of consistent growth in Mayer Brown’s finance capabilities, Ms. Vogel is the 14th partner addition to the firm’s Banking & Finance practice globally in the past year.
