Banking and Finance

We understand that the arrangements you are putting in place with regard to banking, finance and security will be inextricably linked to the completion of your corporate or real estate transaction. We will guide you through what can be highly technical documentation, without losing sight of your commercial objectives.

We act in relation to all banking matters, including on acquisition finance for corporate transactions, asset-based lending or real estate finance. Our advice is primarily for entrepreneurs, high net worth individuals and owner-managed businesses, whether operating through SPVs (onshore or offshore), joint ventures, partnerships or fund structures. Whilst we often act for borrowers, we also act for lenders in this market, and in particular for a number of small banks.

We can help you to structure and negotiate effective lending arrangements and we offer a service which is tailored to suit your needs and the way you operate.  We advise on investment and development facilities, tax driven schemes and limited partnership structures, restructurings and refinances. We also advise borrowers in connection with distressed debt and the analysis of options to move their business forward.

We work closely with our Real Estate team on the financing of real estate transactions whether in relation to development or investment facilities. Our priority is to put together a team of business advisers to allow consideration of all applicable financing options, to incorporate your preferred commercial terms, and to complete all relevant documentation within the planned timescale.
