Paisley’s practice regularly advises banks, investors, and borrowers on financing facilities, leveraged and acquisition finance transactions, property financings, secondary debt deals, and distressed refinancings.

Matthew Cottis, Hogan Lovell’s global head of finance, said that the appointment is only the latest step in the global firm’s building out of the Australian practice.

“His experience complements our existing expertise and provides us with an opportunity to further service the growing finance and debt needs of our corporate transactions,” Cottis said.
