He regularly advises middle-market borrowers and early-stage companies in connection with the structuring, negotiation, and documentation of domestic and cross-border debt financing matters. Stein assists clients across industries and products, with expertise in senior secured debt, second lien financings, asset-based lending, fund-level financings, and related intercreditor matters. Stein also represents clients in debt restructurings, workouts, and general corporate finance matters.
