Debt finance attorneys: Do people in your practice group exclusively work on loans (1L/2L/ABL), or do you also include bond work (bank/bond facilities - so indentures and DONs, but not the rest of the OM) and pref work? I’m currently in a group that does all three types, but I’ve recently heard some firms spit this up, so I was curious if anyone had experience with both and if they had a preference
