Dealmakers Impact Report 2012: Legal Eagles

When Lionsgate gobbled up an $800 million revolving credit facility in September, outside attorney Bruington worked on behalf of Lionsgate but focused on the lending banks. “The bankers are really looking for reliable cash flows and receivables to lend against,” says Bruington. “It’s our job, in representing the company, to use our knowledge of our client’s business to make the banks comfortable lending against those cash flows and receivables.” Her other recent corporate credit transactions include legal work on a $150 million term loan facility for Legendary Entertainment in March and a $100 million senior secured revolving credit facility for the Weinstein Co. in January. On the single-picture front, Bruington represented client Alcon Entertainment in its acquisition of Oren Peli’s “Chernobyl Diaries” and the co-financing deal for Lionsgate’s “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.”

Outside the office: Just gave birth to her second son.
