HSF lead partner Melita Cottrell said: “Having acted for the syndicate on Leighton’s previous financing in 2008, and for other bilateral lenders to Leighton since then, we were pleased to be able to assist the syndicate to achieve a successful financial close for Leighton’s new upsized syndicated facility under a relatively compressed timetable.”
