Banking and finance


All businesses rely on finance, and our banking and finance lawyers specialise in advising businesses on all aspects of debt finance, whether it's external bank debt or intra-group financing arrangements.

For clients planning new bank facilities, or the renegotiation of existing facilities, we offer a full range of services, including the negotiation and implementation of all aspects of syndicated loans, real estate finance, asset finance, receivables financing, lease finance, security for debt finance of all sorts and cash pooling and management services.

In addition, we often work with the mergers and acquisitions network on the debt finance side of proposed acquisitions or the refinancing of existing debt within target groups. In those sectors where the main assets of the business are leased rather than owned, we act for vendors in negotiating with external financiers on the transfer of such business assets as part of the sale.

On corporate structuring transactions, we work closely with our colleagues, either by obtaining consents from external financiers to the proposed arrangements under existing bank documentation, or by implementing intra-group financing arrangements or the provision of intra-group guarantees or security.

As part of an international network, our team can respond quickly to issues as they arise and access the knowledge and experience of their colleagues worldwide to provide workable solutions.
