When you engage SGL, you are hiring a team which naturally includes a Partner. Whether you are working on an LSTA, LMA or LATAM transaction, a trade claim, a corporate finance matter, a compliance matter, you will be working with a team which will always include either Stan Lim, Julie D. Globus, Sharon Davison or Rohit Sabharwal.


STRATEGIC STAFFING: Our Partners are supported by a Specialist who provides intellectual capital, secondary research, and tactical functions in their area of expertise. Nevertheless, everything is personally reviewed by your Partner who sees your transaction through from beginning to end. You always know your point of contact.

Our clients consistently rest assured, with clarity that they will always be receiving quality. On the distressed debt side, documents are turned around in one or two business days. Our documents go out immediately upon trade. At SGL we consistently beat industry standards for T+20.  So, you thought you couldn’t get things done Better, Faster, and Less Expensively? We can prove otherwise.


We are leaders in setting industry standards for data privacy and integrity. By vetting your documents we can help maintain the level of confidentiality that you need to get your trades done and protect against conflicts of interest. This helps provide you with the ability to complete more transactions with greater speed and accuracy. We are pleased to play well with others in the sandbox and often work with fellow distressed debt firms to perform this service. We offer you the same security, while supporting the relationships that you have already established.
