HAMID R. NAMAZIE
Hamid Namazie represents Bank of America (BofA) in some of its biggest and most innovative financing deals and has played a lead role in crafting legislation coast-to-coast that could impact the commercial lending landscape in the years to come. When BofA first considered establishing international asset-based credit facilities a decade ago, they needed a lawyer with the necessary skills and acumen. Namazie stepped in and advised BofA on its first-ever multijurisdictional asset-based financing deal, which involved lending to Targus Corporation in the U.S., Canada, the UK, Singapore and Taiwan.
The success of that deal paved the way for Namazie, who now handles many of BofA’s most important and challenging international lending transactions. For example, he recently represented the bank in a high-profile, $1.6 billion credit facility that provided the multinational toy and game manufacturer, Mattel, Inc. with cash infusions in Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Canada and the U.S.
