The oil and gas industry requires large amounts of capital, and the industry has historically relied upon investors and financial institutions to supply that capital. Ted has represented borrowers, lenders, capital providers and investors in the drafting, reviewing, and negotiating of loans secured by oil and gas production, equity financings, production payments and other forms of mezzanine financing. Occasionally, there is a need to structure or re-structure financing arrangements when a producer finds itself in financial difficulties. This has resulted in Ted’s involvement in the drafting, reviewing, and negotiating of secured and unsecured debt in, or as an alternative to, insolvency proceedings, or revising debt and other instruments.
