Mayer Brown announced today that Benjamin Snyder joined its Banking & Finance practice as a partner in New York. He joins from King & Spalding LLP.

“Advising the world’s financial services industry on complex matters is Mayer Brown’s signature strength, and Ben’s deep experience in leveraged financings as well as middle-market financing transactions will help us continue to expand our capabilities,” said Paul Jorissen, a practice leader of Mayer Brown's Banking & Finance practice. “Our clients will benefit from Ben’s ability to navigate the changing landscape of the syndicated leveraged finance market and capitalize on the upward trend in private lending.”

Mr. Snyder has substantial experience representing financial institutions, direct lenders and borrowers in connection with a wide range of US and cross-border financing transactions, including investment-grade and leveraged acquisition financings, syndicated (including middle market and large cap) and direct lending transactions, asset-based lending deals, and restructuring work. He has extensive experience negotiating credit facilities, commitment letters, engagement letters and fee letters in connection with committed financings for leveraged buyouts.

“As financial institutions become one-stop shops and transactions increasingly combine a broader range of products, the number of law firms that can meet all these requirements under one roof is declining,” said Mr. Snyder. “Mayer Brown is one of the few firms that has both the breadth of offering and the international platform to service these needs—particularly when markets are volatile and deal structures can change overnight. The overall culture and commitment to growth across the finance practice made the firm particularly attractive.”

“Ben’s expertise fits squarely within our lending, leveraged finance, restructuring and private credit practices, which have enjoyed significant growth in New York in recent years,” said Matthew Ingber, the managing partner of Mayer Brown’s New York office. “Ben’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 him to the firm.”
