This course explores key issues in structuring, negotiating and documenting complex financial transactions within their broader commercial, economic and regulatory contexts. The course introduces students pragmatically to basic legal and financial concepts and then applies them to a range of transactions. The course balances the theory, policy and practice of financial transactions and explores how sophisticated contracts and legal structures can be used to manage risk, align investor goals, and create value.

The format is mainly a conversational lecture, with in-class student participation expected, plus a practical take-home drafting exercise.

Because this is a one-unit course taught on a condensed schedule, attendance at ALL class sessions is mandatory for course credit.

The course is taught by Allan Marks, a partner at Milbank LLP and member of the firm's Global Project, Energy and Infrastructure Finance Group, based in Los Angeles. His practice encompasses project finance and development, private equity, mergers & acquisitions, acquisition finance, capital markets and private placements, international and cross-border business transactions, public-private partnerships, joint ventures, restructurings, banking and regulatory matters. He also taught a course on Energy & Infrastructure Project Finance at the Berkeley Law School and the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley for over ten years.

Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
