Jill Feldman serves as Chair of Morrison & Foerster's
Financial Transactions Group and is a member of the firm's Cleantech Steering
Committee. Her practice focuses on international and domestic commercial
lending, acquisition finance, mezzanine and second lien finance, equipment
leasing and project finance. Before joining Morrison & Foerster, Ms.
Feldman was a partner in the San Francisco office of Graham & James, where
she was the co-chair of its credit and project finance and development practice.
Because Ms. Feldman’s practice involves highly complex
transactions, she often creates unique finance structures to meet the needs of
her clients. She develops creative solutions that preserve her client’s
financial and operational objectives, while accommodating the requirements of
the other parties to the transaction. Her goal is the ultimate success of the
deal and her client’s satisfaction with the terms of its agreements. Ms.
Feldman has substantial experience representing agents, lenders, borrowers,
lessors and lessees in big ticket and middle market, domestic and cross-border,
credit facilities, acquisition facilities, asset-based credit facilities,
second-lien credit facilities, letter of credit facilities and purchase money
and equipment finance leasing transactions.
Ms. Feldman also regularly represents private equity funds, investors,
purchasers and sellers in renewable energy project and infrastructure
construction and finance transactions.
Ms. Feldman has substantial experience in negotiating and
closing domestic and cross-border financing transactions for clients in a
number of industry sectors, including large-scale manufacturing, wines and
spirits, pharmaceuticals, technology and intellectual property (including
software and hardware), real estate, exercise facilities and clubs, renewable
energy (wind, solar, biomass and landfill gas), and conventional energy.
