Banking & finance

We enjoy close relationships with banks of all sizes, ranging from some of the world’s largest, to boutiques, and act regularly for them on secured lending instructions. We also offer a full range of services for private lenders and insolvency professionals, giving advice on fundraising, secured lending and restructuring.

 

Our lawyers understand the banking and finance market. While the law is important our banking and finance lawyers also understand the commercial practicalities of raising finance, as well as the parameters within which lenders are willing to provide facilities.

 

We work closely with our transaction teams to ensure that deals that require funding proceed smoothly.

 

Our aim is to find commercial solutions to help you achieve your goals.
