As chair of KJK’s Banking & Finance Group, Anne specializes in commercial transactions involving investors, financial institutions and corporate borrowers, in a wide variety of secured and unsecured complex debt financing transactions, including asset-based financing, structured and mezzanine finance, SWAP and derivative transactions, mezzanine and other investment capital transactions and complex intercreditor agreements. She also represents both lenders and borrowers in restructurings, reorganizations and workouts.
Anne and her team take a unique approach to helping businesses access financing, acting as matchmaker between companies in search of capital and the firm’s extensive network of lenders. She assists companies in accessing financing from traditional banks, private equity, mezzanine sources and construction financing to achieve their goals for growth.
Before launching her legal practice, Anne worked in institutional fixed income securities sales as an NASD Series 7 licensed securities broker and as an officer of a major financial institution in credit underwriting and middle market lending. From her years in banking and the capital markets, Anne developed an astute eye for the details in financial statements, financial covenants and the role of the capital markets in financial transactions.
Anne is also a skilled negotiator in real estate transactions, serving as counsel to owners, borrowers, lenders and developers. She has expertise in matters of property acquisition, development, due diligence, construction, financing, leasing and purchase agreements and divestiture.
Anne also chairs KJK’s Public Finance Group, advising states, counties and municipalities, port authorities, higher education institutions, nonprofit organizations and other types of public issuers, as well as underwriters, lenders, letter of credit and liquidity providers, and borrowers.
Outside of her legal work, Anne is a musical theatre buff and loves a good movie. She also enjoys hiking in Ohio’s state parks with her husband and two children.
“I’m calm in a crisis, an effective negotiator and a quick study. I’m confident as lead counsel in complex transactions, and I’m not afraid to work long and hard to close the deal.” – Anne T. Corrigan
