Biography

Gareth Eagles is White & Case's Head of Private Credit & Direct Lending, and the leading private credit lawyer in the European market. He has been at the forefront of the market during its path to maturity, including working on some of the most high-profile leveraged buyouts of recent times, and in 2019 was hailed by Chambers UK as a "brilliant lawyer who is incredibly hard-working". Gareth's private credit practice focuses on representing investors in a range of situations, including providing unitranche, senior, second-lien, mezzanine and PIK financings, structuring preferred equity, warrants and co-investments, and taking control equity positions, and he is adept at fusing multiple strategies and structuring novel solutions in both performing and distressed situations, whether the assets are privately held or publicly listed. In addition to private credit work, Gareth has represented arrangers and underwriters on some of the most significant syndicated financings in the market, and is equally at home in the large-cap and mid-market spaces. The only leading private credit lawyer to be dual-qualified in New York and England & Wales, Gareth also spent two years in White & Case's New York office, as well as six months in our Singapore office, and has acted on market-leading transactions in a broad variety of jurisdictions.

Gareth led White & Case's team in representing GSO Capital Partners LP on the financing of Advent International's take-private acquisition of Laird PLC, which won the "Loans Deal of the Year" award at the 2019 IFLR European Awards, where the firm also won the awards for "Loans Team of the Year" and "Most Innovative US Law Firm in Europe". Gareth was included in The Lawyer's prestigious "Hot 100" list for 2019. He has been described by Legal 500 UK as "superb" (2018) and "technically brilliant" (2014); in 2019, Chambers UK called him "extremely smart, extremely knowledgeable and a very good negotiator".
