On Thursday, May 25, 2017, Seward & Kissel was awarded “Deal of the Year” at the Lloyd’s List Americas Awards gala for its work on the Ridgebury Fleet Finance credit facility. The matter, which was led by partner Michael S. Timpone and associates Kurt Plankl and Sophia A. Agathis of the Firm’s Maritime and Transportation Finance Group, included a $230 million credit facility for the refinancing of 16 tanker vessels that were previously financed by a Norwegian bond issuance and a bank loan facility.

The Lloyd’s List Americas Awards recognize the best in shipping in North, South and Central America.

Seward & Kissel would like to congratulate the other winners, as well as the nominees.
