DALLAS, TX – December 2, 2015 – Schiff Hardin LLP is pleased to announce that Aaron S. Turner has joined the firm’s Dallas office as counsel in the Finance Group. He joins the firm from Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.
Aaron concentrates his practice on finance transactions, including acquisition financing, leveraged lending, investment-grade lending, and debt restructuring transactions. He advises private equity sponsors, borrowers, and lender-agents on syndicated financings. Aaron also counsels institutional purchasers and issuers on high-yield debt offerings.
“2015 has been a great year for the firm’s Dallas office, and Aaron’s range of finance experience is a timely addition,” said Larry A. Makel, co-leader of the firm’s Finance Group. “By adding seasoned counsel like Aaron to help navigate our increasingly regulated financial sector, we look forward to building even more momentum in the new year.”
Aaron joins the firm on the heels of several key hires in Dallas, including labor and employment litigation partner Tracey Wallace, who joined in August, and corporate finance partner Jason DuVall, who joined in September.
“I am excited to join Schiff Hardin, an outstanding firm supporting a sophisticated finance practice,” said Aaron. “The firm’s expansion in Dallas underscores its commitment to quality growth for the benefit of local, regional, and national clients.”
Aaron’s recent experience includes representing a private equity sponsor client and one of its technology-industry portfolio companies in connection with a recurring revenue-based revolving facility and term loan. He also counseled an energy-sector private equity sponsor client in connection with a complex finance restructuring. He has advised numerous clients in secured and unsecured Rule 144A debt offerings, and in first and second lien credit facilities to finance equity investments and acquisitions.
Aaron earned his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center. He earned his B.B.A. in Finance from Texas Christian University, where he graduated magna cum laude.
