Snyder Joins Sidley in Chicago

James Snyder joined Sidley Austin as a partner in its Chicago-based Global Finance practice. He will focus on commercial finance matters, including corporate lending transactions, acquisition finance, specialty lending and other complex investments.

Snyder has considerable experience representing both banks and alternative lenders in senior secured and unsecured credit facilities, first and second lien transactions, mezzanine and subordinated financings, and cash flow and asset-based transactions. He has counseled both lenders and borrowers in connection with DIP financings, bankruptcy exit facilities, workouts and restructurings.

Prior to joining Sidley, Snyder was a partner at Winston & Strawn.

“Jamie has substantial experience advising middle market and large-cap companies across the credit spectrum, and we are pleased to welcome him to the firm,” said Craig Griffith, member of Sidley’s executive committee and its Global Finance practice. “He will be a key resource in guiding our clients, particularly those in the traditional banking and alternative lending spaces, through transactions within the changing global finance market.”
