Mr. Graybeal has extensive experience representing both providers and users of capital on a wide variety of commercial and structured matters, including leveraged and single investor leasing, securitizations and other structured financings, project financings, secured transactions and bank loan and credit agreements.
My practice focuses on asset and equipment finance and within this area I have deep knowledge and experience in the following industries and practices.
I represent equity investors, lenders and lessees in all aspects of rail car, locomotive and aircraft finance, including operating and finance leases, secured loans, sales and asset transfers and securitization. I work on all aspects of the transactions, from front-end structuring, negotiation and documentation to end of term equipment return as well as work-outs.
I represent developers and investors in project financings, including fossil fueled, solar and wind energy projects as well as manufacturing and infrastructure projects. My work includes negotiating and documenting power purchase agreements, operation and maintenance agreements, SREC contracts, facility leases, equity ownership arrangements.
Since my practice commonly involves secured transactions, I am one of Nixon Peabody’s UCC professionals and frequently consult with colleagues on issues related to secured transactions.
Capital investment in infrastructure, be it in transportation or power, remains the backbone of economic growth. Efficient and effective financing is the key to this investment.
