Vicky concentrates her practice in financing transactions and frequently assists both borrowers and lenders with a broad range of such transactions. Her experience includes acquisition financing, syndicated lending, asset-based lending, high-yield debt, public and project finance, receivables purchase, and equipment leasing transactions. Vicky has also dealt with the related areas of letters of credit, intercreditor agreements, and interest rate swaps. She has acted as borrower’s counsel for both privately-held and publicly-traded companies and nonprofit and educational institutions, and as lender’s counsel for non-institutional and institutional lenders. Vicky has been the lead lawyer both in the structuring, negotiating, and documenting of these transactions as well as in work-outs and restructures. She has represented a trustee on the closing of complex bond transactions and on defaulted transactions.

Because of her experience in cross-border finance, she has developed a unique understanding of the differences in financing transactions in Canada and the United States, allowing her to better customize her U.S. legal services to the needs of Hodgson Russ's Canadian clients.
