Christopher McLean Partner London +44 (0)20 7865 2133

I'm a partner within Restructuring and Debt Advisory. I work with listed and privately-owned corporates, lenders and other stakeholders globally to help raise, refinance and restructure debt facilities.

I believe that assessing valuation and its drivers – then mapping key stakeholders’ understanding of their exposures, motivations and interests – are fundamental to achieving a successful transaction.

For over 13 years, I have helped raise capital for M&A, working capital, capex, dividend recapitalisations and shareholder buyouts. I have also raised new money facilities from incumbent lenders and special situations lenders in distressed scenarios and my work includes providing IBRs, pre-lend reviews, due diligence, valuation, strategic options analyses and contingency planning.

I have worked with a range of companies across the world and different creditors including bank lenders, non-bank lenders, hedge funds, special sits investors, pension funds, insurers, governments and providers of guarantee and surety instruments.

I previously worked within the investment banking division at Lehman Brothers in London, working with a range of clients from across Europe. I am a qualified Chartered Accountant with the ICAEW, and I graduated from the London School of Economics with a First-Class degree in BSc Economics.

Recently, I have worked on several transactions involving CLBIL, CBIL and other government schemes and my work is across a broad range of sectors.

When not working, I love sport including football, golf and boxing.
