Blank Rome Adds to Financial Services Group Practice

Blank Rome announced that Danielle V. Garcia joined the firm as of counsel in the Financial Services group. Garcia will be based in the firm’s Los Angeles office.

Garcia joined Blank Rome from Bingham McCutchen in Los Angeles where she served as Counsel in the Banking and Leveraged Finance group. She focuses her practice on representing lenders in secured finance transactions, including senior, second lien and mezzanine financings, on an asset-based, cash-flow and leverage basis. Such representations include the establishment of credit facilities in the context of acquisitions, recapitalizations, refinancing, debtor-in-possession, working capital and other strategic financings, as well as related restructurings, workouts and intercreditor negotiations.

Garcia’s transactional experience includes U.S. and cross-border financing transactions involving both public and private companies operating across all market segments, including retail, dining, technology, transportation, importing and distribution, construction, manufacturing, service and agriculture.

“We are delighted to welcome Danielle to Blank Rome,” said Financial Services partner Lawrence F. Flick II. “As we continue to expand our Financial Services practice in Los Angeles, we are confident that Danielle’s impressive experience will be a great complement to our national team.”
