The Rock banner 02

During this Master Class, Menno Stoffer and Bas Boutellier will discuss key trends in the post-Covid loan markets, including the cessation of LIBOR, the increased focus on ESG financing and the rise of direct lending. After looking at sample drafts and case studies, participants will come away with concrete tools to use when assessing or negotiating financing arrangements. Naturally, participants will have the opportunity to share their own views and experiences.

This Webinar Master Class will be held on Friday, 3 December from 08:30 to 10:00 via MS Teams.

Menno acts for corporates, financial institutions and private equity investors. Menno has also practised law at De Brauw London and De Brauw New York.
