"Jo Robinson has a growing reputation for her work with both banks and alternative lenders in complex leveraged acquisitions, LBOs and unitranche matters."

Chambers UK, 2018

Banks, debt funds and borrowers turn to Jo when they need advice on a wide variety of financing structures such as senior, second lien and unitranche/super senior financing arrangements and PIK financings on acquisitions and other leveraged finance transactions.

Jo is a young and dynamic partner in our banking team, where she focuses her practice on acquisition and leveraged finance transactions. Jo has been instrumental in developing our market-leading alternative lender practice and her close relationships with some of the very early debt funds in the UK market means she has been at the forefront of the development of the unitranche product, and indeed worked on one of the very first unitranche financings in the London market back in 2008. To deal with Jo is commercial, practical and user-friendly. In 2015, Jo was named in The Lawyer's 'Hot 100' list and in Financial News' '40 under 40 Rising Stars in Legal Services”.
