Banking & Finance

Our Banking team comprises specialist spanning our commercial law, corporate law and property law teams.

We have an experienced legal team to draw upon, with a strong reputation for offering specialist legal advice on banking matters. We advise on a number of different types of banking services, including:

    Leveraged Finance

    Providing the finance used for corporate led mergers and acquisitions, sponsor- led leverage buyouts, and business or product line build outs and expansions.

    Acquisition Lending

    Providing the finance to purchase an asset or a company.  

    Real Estate Lending

    Providing the finance to be secured against a property.

    Mezzanine Finance

    Providing the finance to raise funds for specific projects or to aid with an acquisition through a hybrid of both debt and equity financing.

    Asset Based Lending

    Providing the finance to loan money that is secured by collateral. Asset- based loans or lines of credit can be secured by inventory, accounts receivable, equipment or property owned by a borrower.

    Syndicated Loan Agreements
    • Providing the finance by multiple lenders to lend a proportion of a borrower’s loan through separate commitments.
    Bilateral Loan Agreements

    Providing the finance between a borrower and a single lender, with the ability for a borrower to have two or more bilateral loan agreements in place with different lenders.

    We negotiate and advise on all types of facility and loan agreements and the security options available to lenders and borrowers. These security options include legal charges, debentures, charges over intellectual property rights and charges over shares amongst others.

    Our banking reputation and skillset has seen our appointment to a number of banking panels, including those of Metro Bank plc, National Westminster Bank plc & Svenska Handelsbanken AB.
