The Deal Junkies - Two Lawyers. Unscripted.

The title says it all – we’re two deal lawyers who live for solving problems and closing transactions. The podcast gives us the forum to speak freely – off the clock – about the never-ending stream of legal and business issues we encounter every day. Most of our work relates to secured finance, including real estate, working capital, mezzanine and ABL facilities, so the show will tend to revolve around those topics. But nothing is off limits – that’s the beauty of podcasting.
