Maria Sagan Named Winner in SFNet’s 40 Under 40 Awards 2022

News Jun 15, 2022

McMillan is pleased to congratulate Toronto Partner Maria Sagan for being selected to join a distinguished group of the finance industry’s future leaders. Maria has been recognized as a winner of the Secured Finance Network’s (“SFNet”) 40 Under 40 Award.

The SFNet 40 Under 40 Awards launched in 2016 to celebrate the achievements of young professionals in the secured finance industry – future leaders who exemplify true excellence in their careers, demonstrate commitment to their communities as well those making an indelible impact on the industry. A panel of SFNet member industry leaders select the winners.

Maria is a highly respected lawyer with a diverse financial services practice focused on banking law and complex financing transactions. She works with major banks, private equity firms, and domestic and international corporations in domestic, cross-border and multijurisdictional financings. Drawing on broad experience, Maria advises on secured and unsecured lending, asset-based lending, acquisition finance, derivative and structured transactions, securitizations, syndicated lending and debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing. Maria is currently a member of the Board of Directors of the Association for Corporate Growth, Toronto Chapter and the Co-Chair of its Young Professional’s Committee.

McMillan’s Financial Services Group is unique in that unlike most other large Canadian firms, we have a core bank lending practice that is based on lender clients rather than an add-on group materially relying upon borrower-side work generated from corporate practice. We understand the needs of lenders – from the establishment of their operations to originating a loan to selling the loan (or participating, syndicating or moving the risk off balance sheet) to working out the loan. We understand how to structure transactions to meet internal and external requirements (including credit approval, regulatory restrictions and capital requirements).  We are a financial services law firm acting for Canadian and international financial institutions and known for our work in cross-border transactions and strong working relationships with leading US and UK firms.
