Hoang “Quan” Vu has represented lenders, borrowers, issuers, sponsors, purchasers, and public and private companies in corporate and finance transactions totaling over $20 billion, with a focus on syndicated or project finance transactions in the oil, gas and energy (including alternative energy) sectors. Quan handles complex corporate and finance transactions throughout North America and abroad, including:
- Syndicated and secured Lending
- Oil, gas and energy lending
- Project finance
- Asset-based lending
- First/second lien financing
- Acquisition finance
- Real estate lending
- Structured finance
- Reorganizations, workouts, bankruptcy collateral analysis and sales
- Leasing transactions
- Uniform Commercial Code, opinion and collateral transactions
- Mergers and acquisitions
His practice also includes intellectual property, distributorships and litigation, particularly with an emphasis on Asian-owned businesses seeking investment opportunities in North America. Quan anticipates having a greater role in serving businesses looking to invest in Asian markets. Because of stricter standards and permitting requirements from the EPA, he also expects an uptick in helping obtain financing for clean energy projects, including natural gas plants and alternative sources of energy.
Clients appreciate Quan’s extremely responsive, creative and practical approach, where he identifies risks and provides workable ways to move deals forward. He understands that clients have one primary question when working with lawyers - “Can you help me close this deal with the least amount of risk?” – and he works constantly to fulfill that mission for clients.
Quan has represented banks (typically as lead agent) and borrowers in all types of syndicated loan and club transactions. He is knowledgeable on the market for sophisticated loan transactions and in some cases, developed the loan forms for the banks directly. Quan has experience in traditional upstream (i.e., borrowing base E&P deals), midstream and downstream financings. He has worked on power transactions (including gas, wind and solar), oilfield service and alternative energy financings, in addition to non-energy transactions large and small.
