Banking and Finance

Changes in the banking industry, as it adapts to the requirements of borrowers in the current economic climate and developments in the regulatory framework, have led to the banks refining their products and needing to adapt.

The structuring of banking facilities to achieve a balanced result for both lenders and borrowers, often dovetailing with existing facilities, requires a clear understanding of the commercial objectives of a transaction to meet the demands of the parties.

Our Banking and Finance team has broad experience advising on corporate banking facilities, acquisition finance transactions, working capital facilities and asset based secured lending matters. We act for lenders, borrowers and investors. Over the past years the department has grown rapidly acting for a number of the leading banks and financial institutions.

When acting for borrowers and investors we find that our experience working alongside lenders allows us to provide an extra dimension to the negotiation process.

We are able to apply our extensive experience to deliver a balanced approach in a cost effective and time efficient manner.
