CHARLOTTE, N.C. – August 27, 2015 – Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney announced the addition of B. Taber Cathcart as head of the firm’s Charlotte office and shareholder in the firm’s Financial Services Practice Group.

“Taber is a top-quality financial services attorney with substantial experience and connections in the financial arena,” Chair of Buchanan’s Financial Services Practice Rebecca Livingston Lando said. “She brings an entrepreneurial spirit that will help to spearhead the growth of the firm’s Charlotte office.”

Cathcart focuses her practice on diversified financial transactions, primarily concentrating on senior and subordinated debt transactions, including acquisition finance and working capital credit facilities. Her practice includes a broad range of experience representing financial institutions, investment firms and institutional investors in a variety of roles. She has represented agent banks, arrangers, underwriters and lead senior and/or mezzanine debt providers.
