Experience & Activities

Lewis Grimm has almost two decades of leveraged finance experience working on marquee deals in New York and Australia. He represents financial institutions, direct and institutional lenders, and corporate borrowers on leveraged and IG lending and HY transactions, both domestic and crossborder, as well as high-profile restructuring and bankruptcy matters.

One of Lewis’s high-profile deals included helping majority term loan lenders restructure a U.S. facility agreement through an Australian creditors’ scheme of arrangement in the metals and mining industry. Lewis has also represented secured term loan lenders in a chapter 11 case with its affiliated debtors in the Oil and Gas Industry. This plan received approval within 15 days of filing, making it the fastest ever chapter 11 reorganization for a debtor having at least $500 million in liabilities.

Lewis was recognized by New York Metro Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star” for four consecutive years, designated by M&A Advisor as one of 40 leading lawyers under the age of 40, and named by The Legal 500 US as a “next generation lawyer.”
