Banking

Working with you

We specialise in advising lenders and borrowers in connection with a wide variety of financing agreements from stand alone finance or re-financing agreements to complex transactional finance within the context of M&A, project finance or other major projects. Banking agreements and finance documentation have become increasingly complex, as the banking and financial sector has become more regulated. This is a specialist area of work, often involving tight deadlines, in which we have built up a wealth of experience acting for banks, private lenders and businesses raising finance.

We act for a number of banks which gives us a high level of understanding of bank lending to achieve greater commercial leverage negotiating with banks on behalf of borrower clients. This knowledge helps us to quickly and accurately identify the issues that really matter in the transaction. Our banking advice often involves drawing on the knowledge of specialist members of our corporate, commercial, construction, property and tax teams.
