Banking and finance
Raising finance is critical to the future success of any organisation — it allows it to thrive and grow, or simply to survive. Our national banking and finance team advises clients on a range of financing transactions across a wide variety of sectors, often with a multi-jurisdictional element.
Acting for borrowers, lenders and investors means we have a practical understanding of the needs of all parties to a financing transaction.
Our expertise extends to corporate lending, acquisition finance, asset finance, real-estate finance, marine and shipping finance, invoice discounting and refinancings.
We work closely with some of the UK’s major banks and financial institutions and have approved panel solicitor status with many of them.
We manage transactions from start to finish, ensuring a smooth and cohesive process, enabling clients to continue to focus on building their relationships and running their businesses.
Our team will take responsibility for making the deal happen, speaking your language and putting your commercial interests first — one of the reasons clients describe our team as ‘commercial and results driven’.
